Telemedicine Course


Guarantee your success by participating in the Telemedicine Empowerment workshop. This value added Stryker initiative seeks to rapidly expose our partners to the full spectrum of the power of telemedical applications.

From the history of this art form to current policy and reimbursement issues to the technological foundation of this modern day miracle to actual program development details and hands on experience, this program of empowerment seeks to eliminate the mystery of successful program development by educating administrators, doctors and nurses alike.

A review of the history of telemedicine and telemedicine applications will be presented. Comprehensive reviews of current “traditional” telemedical programs as well as “extreme” telemedical applications are reviewed. Current telemedical programs, their development, licensure, accreditation, reimbursement policies, privacy policies, medico-legal aspects and why many programs fail are examined.

Participants will be given the opportunity to familiarize themselves with Stryker operating room and its telecommunications abilities. The technology involved with telementoring will be introduced including a comprehensive review of cameras, monitors, telestration, connectivity and data transmission. Participants will also learn communications protocols in order to telementor more effectively.
Unique experiences including simulated mission planning, pre-procedural assessments, standardization of protocols, and mission execution are also reviewed. We hope to inspire the imaginations of surgeons by showcasing the variety of applications of telementoring and telemonitoring.

Dr. James “Butch” Rosser and his team from the Advanced Medical Technology Institute at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City will get you where you need to be!
