Come and take a look!
WASHINGTON, October 9, 2009 – Dr. Ted Eytan, Medical Director for Delivery Systems Operations Improvement with Kaiser Permanente, has joined the panel of experts for the next Broadband Breakfast Club, “Setting the Table for the National Broadband Plan: Health Care,” on Tuesday, October 13, 2009, at 8 a.m.
The series, which will run until February 9, 2010, one week before the Federal Communications Commission’s plan is due to Congress, will continue the Broadband Breakfast Club’s year-long tradition of inviting top experts and policy-makers to share breakfast and perspectives on broadband technology and internet policy.
The panel on Tuesday, October 13, 2009, is the second in the series. It will consider: How will broadband affect burgeoning controversies over health care? Are the cost savings available through telemedicine as good as promised? Will information technologies be part of the solution – or just another complicating factor in the intricate medical system?
