Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 06, 2017
Cloudbreak Health (“Cloudbreak”) — a pioneering unified telemedicine service that brings all medical specialties together on a single platform and provides a solution for the entire continuum of care — was selected to present its innovative capabilities and lead the collaborative discussion on telemedicine’s applications in orthopaedics at the UCSF Digital Orthopaedics Conference San Francisco (DOCSF) on Jan. 8, 2017 -- bridging the Consumer Electronics Show and JP Morgan Healthcare Conference. Cloudbreak Health’s session will be held at 2:00 p.m. in the Montgomery Room at the InterContinental San Francisco, 888 Howard Street, San Francisco, CA 94103.
Cloudbreak Health’s platform is being used nationwide by more than 650 hospitals that are performing more than 65,000 telemedicine encounters per month in a broad variety of specialties including Tele-stroke, Tele-psychiatry and Tele-ICU, all with integrated language services for Limited English Proficient (LEP) and Deaf and Hard of Hearing patients – on one device, at the touch of a button. Easy access to all of these specialties, including orthopaedics, is becoming critically important as hospitals move away from fee for services and more towards a value-based model of care that integrates population health strategies.
Cloudbreak Health’s telemedicine platform is transforming the healthcare industry by providing an easy way for hospitals and other healthcare providers to quickly and cost-effectively launch interoperable telehealth solutions with their Telemedicine as a Service (“TaaS”) model. The platform brings much-needed simplicity to a healthcare industry overwhelmed by complexity, while also improving quality, satisfaction and outcomes. Cloudbreak Health’s stated mission is to “Humanize Healthcare.”
“The DOCSF conference is about bringing practical solutions that the industry leaders in attendance can readily implement or pilot,” said Cloudbreak Health’s CEO & Co-Founder, Jamey Edwards. “It is our mission to focus on a high-cost, high volume area of medicine that will drive significant value for attendees and be a great kick-off to the JP Morgan Healthcare Conference.”
"We are thrilled to have Cloudbreak Health participate at DOCSF," said Dr. Stefano Bini, MD, founder and chair of the conference. "Cloudbreak Health's expertise in telemedicine will give participants the tools by which they can increase the quality of communication between healthcare providers and patients."
