MDAgree, a leading technology company providing an advanced cloud-based complex case collaboration platform to the healthcare industry, will present at the 15th Annual Population Health Colloquium’s special Telehealth Summit taking place on Sunday, March 22nd, 2015 on the campus of Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Warren Bromberg, MD, FACS, Chief Medical Officer of MDAgree, will be addressing the untapped potential of telemedicine to facilitate physician-to-physician clinical collaboration on complex disorders (e.g., orthopedic spine surgery, prostate cancer, etc.) in order to increase the probability patients are diagnosed and treated correctly the first time.
Commenting on evidence that indicates 1 in 5 initial diagnoses are incorrect, Dr. Bromberg said, “MDAgree’s telemedicine platform was designed from the physician's vantage point to allow multiple, geographically dispersed physicians to expeditiously review, collaborate, and opine on complex cases. The value of specialized telemedicine solutions, like MDAgree, is their ability to help physicians deliver better quality care at a lower cost, while improving workflow and mitigating risk for all stakeholders.”
David B. Nash, MD, MBA, FACP, Dean, Jefferson School of Population Health, Thomas Jefferson University and Co Chair of the Colloquium, said, “We are pleased to host MDAgree, and provide a forum that explains opportunities to further our mission in providing quality and affordable team-based care.”
