Product Description


This exciting webinar series explores the challenges, opportunities, and current uses of new and dynamic technologies in the provision of a wide variety of medical and health services. Current technologies are changing the nature of how providers, both large and small, are expanding the reach of their services. The ongoing advancement of such technologies will further challenge the long-established parameters of service setting, modeling, and delivery. In the midst of constant change, providers are often forced to react to the conditions created by new technologies. This webinar series is designed to reverse that trend with guidance and insight on how providers can get "ahead of the curve" and utilize new technologies to enhance service efficacy and efficiency.

Designed to benefit direct service professionals and administrators, the "Ahead of the Curve" webinar series addresses the critical issues surrounding the integration of technology in the provision of medical and health services. Topics include:

  • Providing appropriate care and treatment with technology
  • Evaluating the effectiveness of technology integration on the provision of services
