Excellent presentation. you put lots of thought into this concept. Very good design. Very well delivered. Great Job!
Very good presentation. Well done on the delivery

Great presentation

Very creative presentation!

I think that they're presentation was well thought-out, and each member of the team seemed to play a role in the presentation. I didn't like how they were all crammed behind the desk while presenting, but their awesome demonstration video made up for that!

Great presentation. Maybe so good that it covered up the major flaws of the concept. Entertaining and enjoyable.
enjoyable presentation, just curious like randeree if it would actually be a necessary service

Lots of cool features

Overall a great presentation and a solid demo
It was both funny and professional. Great job!

The presentation looked good. The tutorials a were really nice addition.

It would be easier on the patient if the login information was automatically populated when making an appointment or refilling prescriptions.

Some group members were reading straight off the slides, but overall the presentation was good.


Final Project Deliverable - Telehealth Trainer


For our final project, we have two different web sites: a TeleHealth Trainer informative company web site, and an example of a physician's web site.

The first of the two is our 'TeleHealth Trainers of America' web site. This is our informative, company web site that describes in detail what the service is, what it offers, and what the benefits are. It has a 'Find A Practice' page, where users can find doctors that use the services provided by the TeleHealth Trainers of America. It also includes how-to videos and manuals for doctors and patients to use. The intended audience of this web site is for medical professionals who want to implement telehealth and telemedicine in their practice, but need a company to help start these services for them.

The second web site is an example of medical practice that uses the TeleHealth Trainer services, a fictitious doctor's office named Solomon, Murphy, and Mendez of Tallahassee. This example of a doctor's office's web site is targeted at would-be patients who want to learn more about the practice, become new patients, contact their doctor, or do other things. Patients can create accounts and log-in. Once they are logged-in, they will view the secure page which list various things they can do---such as fill out a new patient form, request an appointment or a prescription refill, and make Skype calls to their doctor. This web site also assists users by offering step-by-step how-to videos and manuals.

Visit the web sites!





COMMENTS 10/30
So you built a website and added a skype link -- how is this demonstrating telehealth
will you film skype how to videos
What "telehealth training" are you providing
Log in for patients - so how do they find doctors available for telehealth
what times are available (I'm assuming your docs are not sitting around waiting for calls)
What about security - do yo mention that
Are calls recorded to ensure accuracy/quality
There are other examples of telehealth services - decide if yours is a MD with skype or a portal with telehealth docs that can provide on call service
lots to do in 1 month



Project Prototype - Physician Website with Skype Integration and Patient Log-In

http://2007.ispace.ci.fsu.edu/~cew09d/lis4785/telehealth/prototype/index.php/home

Above is the link to our prototype for our Telehealth Trainer. Doctor's office who have a telehealth trainer will have web sites where they can not only provide information about their practice and their office, but allow patients to get in contact with them. Web sites with the Telehealth Trainer will have a log in page for patients. The log-in page will lead them to a secure page that lets them fill out forms, request an appointment, call their doctor via Skype, or request prescription refills. New users can also register to use the site.




Project Description: According to Wikipedia, telehealth describes the delivery of health-related services and information through various telecommunications technologies (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telehealth). Our project will focus on how telehealth can positively affect the health care industry and how health care professionals and patients alike can benefit from it. We also plan to demonstrate how easy telehealth is to implement in health care facilities by demonstrating some already available software (such as Skype), and provide research on the topic by discussing success stories and potential costs.

Team: Elizabeth Huszagh, Joshua Mendez, Joel Murphy, Neville Smith, Gabriel Solomon, Courtney Williams




Project Outline - Telehealth Trainer

  1. Project Introduction/Description
    1. Name of Product/Service: Telehealth Trainer
    2. According to Wikipedia, telehealth describes the delivery of health-related services and information through various telecommunications technologies1.
    3. Our project will focus on how telehealth can positively affect the health care industry and how health care professionals and patients alike can benefit from it.
    4. We also plan to demonstrate how easy telehealth is to implement in health care facilities by demonstrating some already available software (such as Skype), and provide research on the topic by discussing success stories and potential costs.
  2. Team
    1. Members
      1. Elizabeth Huszagh (ejh07@fsu.edu), Joshua Mendez (jem09g@fsu.edu), Joel Murphy (jwm08c@fsu.edu), Neville Smith (ns08@fsu.edu), Gabriel Solomon (gas08@fsu.edu), and Courtney Williams (cew09d@fsu.edu)
  3. Main Deliverable
    1. A website that integrates important medical information, information about the doctor’s office, and Skype for easy access for both patients and doctors.
      1. Makes it convenient for patients to make appointments, find contact information, get medical advice, as well as many other things
  4. What The Main Deliverable Will Do
    1. Video calls demonstrate how doctors can interact with patients remotely. A doctor is now literally one call away.
      1. Nurses will also be available for video calls for general health-related questions (similar to a nurse hotline that many insurance companies offer).
    2. Website that will allow patients to learn more information about the doctor’s office, their services, and other important information.
    3. Allows patients to fill out important forms online before coming to their first appointment.
    4. Give patients pricing and insurance information.
  5. Competitors
    1. Telehealth Services is the biggest provider of telehealth services in the United States, and at the moment, our biggest competitor.
      1. They provide hardware and services to companies that want to take advantage of Telehealth for a cost.
        1. The main advantage we hope to have over them is that they seem to be very expensive and we aim to make our services cheap and easier to use.
        2. Cheap and/or free services will help to gain trust with the customers.
  6. Reasons Why Product Beats Competitors
    1. The Telehealth Trainer will be cheaper and easier to use.
    2. Will be a service to use at home instead of having to buy special equipment.
  7. Project Timeline
    1. Project Outline: by October 9, 2011 (completed by entire group)
    2. Initial Research: by October 16, 2011 (Neville Smith, Joel Murphy)
    3. Website Building Phase 1: by October 23, 2011 (Courtney Williams, Josh Mendez)
    4. Skype integration: by October 30, 2011 (Courtney Williams, Josh Mendez)
    5. Documentation: by November 6, 2011 (Gabriel Solomon, Liz Huzsagh)
    6. Final Product: by November 20, 2011 (completed by entire group)
  8. Proposed Meeting Times
    1. Tuesdays and Thursdays immediately after class (3:15pm).
    2. Two Saturday afternoons a month (2:00pm).
  9. Strengths/Weaknesses
    1. Team Members’ Strengths
      1. All team members have web experience and are very familiar with Skype.
      2. All team members have good writing skills as well as good time management skills.
      3. Team works well together.
    2. Team Members’ Weaknesses
      1. All team members are familiar with programming and have a working knowledge of it, but are not skilled in it.
      2. Team has no start-up money.
  10. Who Will Benefit and How
    1. It is inconvenient for some patients to physically go to the doctor’s office and get cared for. Our product will benefit them and make it possible for them to be seen and possibly even treated by the doctor through telehealth, depending on their severity of their problem.
    2. Some patients only need to see the doctor for a small problem. They can save time by calling in and getting what they need instead of going to the office and waiting.
    3. There are patients that travel frequently and do not want to go to a different doctor. They will still be able to see their doctor remotely.
  11. Sample Product
    1. This is an example of what a site that is integrated with the Telehealth Trainer will look like.
      1. Example can be found at: http://fabenobgyn.com/.
    2. Web sites with the Telehealth Trainer will have Skype integrated. This example does not.
