Brain Injury Webinar
Treating Brain Injuries: Employing Hybrid Telehealth Advances to Improve Evaluation, and Outcomes.
Brain injury is often referred to as a silent epidemic, as it is not well understood by the general public or by many healthcare professionals. Often, people with a brain injury have not been properly diagnosed and have not received treatment essential to healing. As a result, individuals are overmedicalized, with a corresponding increase in disability, with costs and lost productivity estimated at $76.5 billion annually. This panel presentation will demonstrate how advanced biometric telehealth systematically is employed to dramatically improve diagnosis, treatment, accelerate MMI and decrease overall costs.
Program Learning Objectives:
- Learn how to determine whether or not a brain injury occurred.
- Learn how to identify the best type of evaluation to improve outcomes.
- Understand how biometric telehealth can accelerate MMI and decrease overall costs.
