Full Title: Aug 3 Biosciences Seminar – Obstacles and Opportunities, Providing Healthcare on Video
Speaker: Tom Hunter, CEO, iHope Network

Online Registration: While walk-ins are always welcomed, advance registration is appreciated – please note: the charge for all walk-ins in $15


Talk therapy for insomnia, anxiety, and other disorders can be just as effective on video as it is in the office. It’s easier for patients to access, and less expensive to deliver. However regulatory and reimbursement issues can impact a provider’s ability to offer care and the patient’s ability to access it. Despite the challenges, simple innovation in this area offers a solution to major treatment and cost problems. Tom Hunter, CEO of IHope Network will cover the obstacles they are faced with and the advances occurring in the digital health space.
