Verizon is the latest telecom to seek riches in mobile healthcare

It’s a two-pronged strategy, according to Nancy Green, Verizon’s managing principal for healthcare, who spoke with FierceMobileHealthcare on Monday. The patient-centric part of the equation will focus on traditional telehealth services such as remote consultation, while other services will provide technology for continuing medical education and, increasingly, virtual encounters between management of hospitals, physician practices, laboratories and government agencies. “Verizon is moving beyond the communication side [of healthcare] to the business-process side,” Green says. She envisions the latter group of applications to include research and development, grand rounds and simply multi-site business meetings.

Now the largest, best 3G network in the US can be put to use improving the care, educations and monitoring of our patients.
