Executive Session agenda set for 2013 RCEC
LAS VEGAS — The Convenient Care Association and Drug Store News have announced the agenda for the Executive and Health Systems Leadership Colloquium for this year’s Retail Clinician Education Congress, which will be held in May in Las Vegas.
The Executive and Health Systems Leadership Colloquium launched in 2011 at the Retail Clinician Education Congress at a time when the retail clinic industry was expanding, both in number of clinics and scope of services. Today, the retail clinic industry is established; consumers like the convenience, price transparency and customer service. Now retail clinic organizations are stepping into the next level of innovation with strategic partnerships and working within their communities to build the healthcare workforce pipeline. The Colloquium will address these topics, as well as what the research says about the clinics and their opportunities, the role of retail clinics in the landscape of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), and what the future looks like for the industry overall. The Colloquium is designed for management, upper management and C-level executives of retail clinic operators, and companies and organizations interested in entering the retail clinic industry. The Executive and Health Systems Leadership Colloquium is supported by athenahealth.

HealthSpot to showcase telehealth technology at CES on the Hill event
DUBLIN, Ohio — HealthSpot, a provider of telehealth technology, has been asked to present at the Consumer Electronics Association 2013 CES on the Hill, the company has announced.
The invite-only event, which takes place on April 16 at the Rayburn House Office Building Cafeteria (B-357), provides policymakers the opportunity to interact with technology companies that are driving policy change. HealthSpot is the only healthcare-focused technology company selected to participate, and will be exhibiting alongside consumer electronics stalwarts including Google, Microsoft and Intel, the company stated.
HealthSpot was selected by the CEA to present its HealthSpot Station, a private, walk-in kiosk with integrated medical devices that provides an audio and video solution that brings patients a face-to-face experience with a board certified doctor who is miles away. The HealthSpot Station enables patients’ immediate access to care via high-definition videoconferencing and interactive, digital telehealth tools.
"HealthSpot has developed technology to produce the highest quality, lowest cost healthcare appointment on the market today. We’re currently working with policymakers and payers in the ecosystem to get telehealth visits reimbursed the same way as a regular office visit," stated Steve Cashman, CEO of HealthSpot. "We are honored to be invited to CES on the Hill to engage in telehealth policy conversations with decision makers. Ultimately, to keep costs from skyrocketing in America, we need to work with payers and policymakers to address the challenges that keep people from gaining access to affordable care."
In HealthSpot’s home state of Ohio, the State Medical Board revisited and updated their interpretation of electronic prescription guidelines. Doctors in Ohio may now e-prescribe medication to new telemedicine patients when using appropriate diagnostic medical equipment to transmit real-time vital signs and data.
