Professional Development Guest Speaker- Ann Hawkins, PhD

Topic – Telehealth … The Changing Landscape for Healthcare

Considering rising healthcare cost, over 70 percent of employers are expected to offer Telehealth services by 2017. In terms of dollars, research has found that Telemedicine has grown from $9.8 billion in 2010 to a projected $23 billion within 5 years.

Dr. Hawkins will offer insight on the current landscape of Telemedicine. We will learn how this trending technology impacts workplace productivity and employer cost. Dr. Hawkins will also discuss what employers are looking for from healthcare providers as well as the challenges and opportunities for EAP’s.

About the Speaker

Ann Hawkins is Founder of WellCare Dimensions Inc. Ann began her long career as a physical education major in college which led to teaching and coaching gymnastics at the collegiate level for many years, eventfully venturing into the sports health and fitness equipment arena.

Her passion was always in preventive medicine and the positive financial impact of staying healthy had on companies and the government. Consequently, Ann’s doctoral research was related to the employer financial savings of preventive medicine, fitness, and wellness as well as which programs really worked. At that time, no one had ever looked at the financial impact of good health, fitness and well-being on corporate financials.

This experience inspired  the formation of the consulting firm, WellCare Dimensions Inc. and the development of The 24hour Virtual Clinic™ which pulls together the best products, services and tools in healthcare to serve the client in the most efficient and cost effective way.
