When an elderly woman began developing perplexing symptoms late one night in a rural Maryland hospital, it was a physician many miles away in Baltimore who first noticed she was having a heart attack and assisted the hospital staff in offering effective treatment. With advances in technology, doctors can now monitor critically ill patients remotely in tele-ICUs, or evaluate them through tele-consultations without the patient ever coming to their office. Dr. Marc Zubrow, vice president of telemedicine for the University of Maryland Medical System and medical director of the University of Maryland’s eCare program, will talk about how telemedicine is changing the practice of medicine – and expanding opportunities for patients.
