T(ED)elehealth! Tech, Entertainment, Design, Telehealth!


Imagine you are VP of marketing for a brand new, groundbreaking virtual medicine platform. You are responsible for all four Ps of the Marketing Mix: product, price, promotion, and place. Now imagine using tech, entertainment, and design to transform health and healthcare with your platform. Finally, imagine discussing in social virtual reality!

Once in a while, three great conferences align! Every other week we hold #HealthSystemsChat in #SocialVR in conjunction with a great conference someplace cool. This week three great conferences overlap, the American Telemedicine Association Conference & Expo, TED2019, and Healthcare and IT Marketing Conference!


Time does fly! Last year's #ATA18 Telehealth & VR AltspaceVR event was well attended. Since this year's ATA overlaps with TED, and TED overlaps with HITMC, I thought... telehealth and marketing married technology, education, and design... what would that offspring look like? Let's find out with the first ever joint-ATA-TED-HITMC Health Systems Chat in Social VR!

Take a look at ATA (especially regarding video conferencing) and HITMC sessions and exhibitors, then imagine a dynamic, charismatic, positively TED-esque speaker painting a picture of how virtual reality will revolutionize virtual care. Then imagine you are that speaker! Bring your one-to-five minute elevator pitch and prepare to fill the gap during one of my almost famous 30 seconds of my self-imposed pregnant silences!

In the meantime, see my own Virtual Care Will Become Virtual Reality Care: Patient Engagement & Digital Twins and Virtual Reality-based Healthcare & IT Marketing.

I live-streamed the 360 video below during HITMC's award ceremony. A patient advocate who could not attend watched herself getting an award!
