At the American Telemedicine Association’s (ATA) Annual Conference in Chicago April 29 – May 1, healthcare professionals and leaders from an array of healthcare and technology sectors united as a single, cohesive community to learn how telehealth transforms the way we deliver healthcare. Attendees learned, innovated, networked and returned to their organizations with actionable insights, long-lasting connections and an enhanced appreciation of telehealth.

Woolpert attended ATA18 as a Premier Google Partner, and throughout the show, we were regularly asked, “Why is Google here?” Well, we came to learn how Google Maps could be beneficial to the telemedicine industry and the insight we gained was instrumental.

Here are 6 ways that the Woolpert + Google team’s services fit perfectly into the telemedicine model:

  1. Geofencing: Combine GPS with Google imagery and cloud computing to target patient locations during critical events such as mental health emergencies or loss of consciousness.
  2. Cross-reference: Ensure that patient locations are covered by the medical expert’s area of license.
  3. Auto-population: Easily complete patient and visit details on web-based forms.
  4. Route tracking: Track driving routes of ambulances, home healthcare providers and other medical personnel in order to ensure quick and efficient care.
  5. Electronic visit verification (EVV): Collect route, mileage and visit log data for home healthcare providers to meet EVV obligations.
  6. Medical device tracking: Keep tabs on the locations of high-dollar medical equipment.
