CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Analyte Health, an integrated health care partner that connects patients and telehealth providers with diagnostic testing services and local care, announced today that CEO Dr. Frank Cockerill will give a keynote address at the 34th Annual Lab Institute 2016.
“The healthcare industry is evolving at a rapid pace, presenting new opportunities, but also challenges for reference laboratories, and it’s more important than ever to understand how to effectively navigate the space,” said Dr. Cockerill. “This conference is an important moment for these conversations to happen and I’m honored to be a part of them.”
Dr. Cockerill’s keynote speech will focus on the consumerization of healthcare and the different demands created by patients’ increasing desire to take charge of their healthcare and for convenient, readily accessible care. Cockerill will highlight the role that laboratory testing has to play in this new paradigm. The keynote will also:
- Present data to show the rise of telehealth – an evolved approach that enables telemedicine to expand beyond empirical health counseling and into preventive health and chronic care management
- Explain how telehealth providers are integrating lab testing into their doctor-patient relationships in order to improve quality and offer more comprehensive care
- Speak to how consumers and telehealth companies represent new channels for diagnostic lab testing
- Show how innovative models can improve efficiency, decrease costs and help bridge the current gap between telehealth and traditional medicine.
The three-day conference, hosted by G2 Intelligence, focuses broadly on “The Pivot Point: Navigating New Regulations & Shifting Incentives,” and began earlier this week in Washington, DC, at the Hyatt Regency Washington On Capitol Hill. Dr. Cockerill will present his keynote on “Digital Diagnostics and the ‘Uber-ification’ of Healthcare" today.
Cockerill also published a post on Medium.com, Telemedicine, Floppy Disk of the Modern Age, sharing additional thoughts on how the telehealth industry has evolved and what it means for today’s providers to stay competitive, available on Medium.com: https://medium.com/@FCockerillMD.
