MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Investors will gather on September 15th at AGC's 2016 Boston Technology Growth Conference to hear from Zipnosis CEO and co-founder Jon Pearce about the technology driving healthcare's accelerating transition beyond the four walls of the traditional provider facility. Pearce will participate in the panel discussion "The Evolution of Telemedicine to Virtual Care," sharing his insightful commentary on the forces that will make virtual care as ubiquitous as the doctor's waiting room—only far more profitable.
This transition comes as telemedicine itself is increasingly recognized as just one subset of the broader virtual care arena, which includes services from tele-consults to digital health coaching to remote patient monitoring and more. Companies with innovative platforms that support this wider array of virtual care offerings are now the vendors of choice for health systems and payers focused on expanding access and improving quality at a lower cost. These organizations are realizing that virtual care is their means to achieve what would otherwise be counter objectives.
An entrepreneur and company to watch
