This short video shares partnership perspectives from Ethan Booker, MD, Medical Director of the MedStar Telehealth Innovation Center, and Bill Sheahan, Chief Innovation Officer of MedStar Health. You will learn how Bluestream Health has supported MedStar Health’s telehealth initiatives for many years, most recently helping the health system address challenges created by the pandemic and scale connected care.
Bluestream Health is also recognized for its focus on accessibility, enabling MedStar Health and other partners to easily and rapidly connect to interpreters of more than 200 languages including American Sign Language (ASL).
The Bluestream Health platform-as-a-service has supported the majority of MedStar Health’s estimated 1.5 million total telehealth encounters during the first two years of the COVID-19 pandemic. They attribute this to both a strong, innovative collaboration and the simplicity and other benefits of the Bluestream Health platform, which have helped MedStar Health integrate connected care into existing clinical workflows and support transformation where necessary.
“It’s been an essential partnership in both bringing the technology forward but also redesigning the work,” said Bill Sheahan, Chief Innovation Officer, MedStar Health
