Excerpt from May 1 POLITICO Morning eHealth Newsletter: Part 2 legislative hearing scheduled — Telemedicine update — HIPAA and the White House docs

TELEMEDICINE UPDATE: Our colleague, Mohana provides this update on Zipnois from the American Telemedicine Association conference in Chicago: the company, an asynchronous telemedicine platform that sells to health care providers, expects to better tailor its service to specific patients, chief medical officer Lisa Ide tells her.

Since last year, Zipnosis has been dispatching public health notices through its system to patients in certain geographic areas affected by outbreaks and is “working to make the whole experience more personalized,” Ide says. Another feature Zipnosis currently offers routes patients through the health system directly to the specific level of care they require, and the company is refining that capability, Ide said.
