Hoag Hospital Foundation – The Future of HealthCare InTouch Health Technologies

Posted Sep 28 2009 10:21pm

I received an email today from the foundation about their upcoming event and thought this was worth passing along for others to view as well.  This image is an annual event that also helps fund and support nursing education at the hospital.  You can’t help but notice the picture of the robot on the  brochure, right?  If you read this blog, I have written frequently about the “Robo-doc” as they are used in many facilities today, to include UCLA, and recently even helped get a hospital in Fountain Valley, accredited as a stroke center.

Robots at Work in Orange County Hospitals – California

The CEO of InTouch Technologies, who manufactures the robots is the guest speaker at the event, so you can see the hospital is making great strides to keep their nursing community updated on how healthcare is changing today.  Under the related reading section below I have included some prior posts that include videos on how the robot is used and functions today, including one from Johns Hopkins.  Hoag Hospital is also very active in utilizing the Stark laws to help subsidize the cost of electronic records for their doctors who are on staff there and I believe the amount graduates as high as a 60% assistance rate, based on an article posted last year.  BD
