By Jason Povio
When I worked for a healthcare system based in the Southeast, clinical data convinced me that telemedicine was the right choice for our hospitals. Since earning my Masters of Science in Engineering Management, industrial and management systems engineering, data has always been my weapon of choice.
You don’t meet many healthcare professionals with engineering backgrounds. At first glance the two fields don’t go together. It surprises me how often I rely on my engineering past to bring a fresh perspective to the present and future of healthcare—especially when it comes to considering whether a telemedicine program is right for your hospital.
