re: Teleservices Interest Grows In Healthcare
As crucial as it is to elderly citizens, I still donGÇÖt think
that many of todayGÇÖs elderly population are receptive to the remote
monitoring/virtual visit system. I think that even if they have trouble going
to visit physicians they prefer the more old school face to face visits they
can receive from house calls. This will of course change as our generation gets
older.

Having some account mix-ups -- I wrote the previous comment.

I wonder how well this remote monitoring/virtual visit system is being received in the elderly care community. There are obvious barriers elderly patients would encounter due to lack of familiarity with the technology, but virtual visits are extremely valuable for elderly patients who have trouble making it to actual appointments.

IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
