Talk Info

Talk Description

Telehealth has the power to solve some of the most difficult problems in health care. Mississippi’s limited resources and rural population created an opportunity for leadership in telehealth and the results have shown decreased cost and improved health outcomes. Dr. Kristi Henderson is the University of Mississippi Medical Center’s chief advanced practice officer and director of the Center’s telehealth program. Henderson spearheaded UMMC’s statewide TelEmergency program, which connects 14 rural hospitals to emergency physicians via a telemedicine system.
