About the Presentation
This webinar will offer insight into how the US military can provide high-quality, cost-effective, timely access to health care for soldiers and their families — specifically those with post-traumatic stress disorders who may not have easy access to bricks and mortar facilities.
Andrea Ippolito will report on findings and recommendations by an MIT team that researched how technology can help reach those at risk. In this discussion, she will:
  • Define the term "tele-health" and explain how technology can be used to treat behavioral disorders at a distance;
  • Explain the overall systems-based approach the team used to evaluate the current state of tele-behavioral health within the military;
  • Detail the specific enterprise lenses of strategy, policy, organization, services, processes, infrastructure, and knowledge used to examine psychological heath-care services; and
  • Share the architecture recommendations proposed to deliver improved tele-behavioral health services to soldiers and their families in the future.
A question and answer session will follow the presentation.
We invite you to join us!
