CTeL is excited to announce that Lieutenant Colonel James J. Jones, US Army, PhD, PA-C, will be giving the keynote address at the 2017 Executive Telehealth Spring Summit. Telehealth is a vital tool in protecting the Commander-in-Chief, and LTC Jones will discuss the unique aspects of deploying telemedicine in the White House, as well as in challenging environments.
LTC Jones is currently assigned to the White House Medical Unit and has spent the past eight years in a variety of roles, including deputy director of the White House Medical Unit, and is currently the PA to the Physician to the President.
His experience spans two presidential administrations and provides insight into a world that combines telehealth, emergency preparedness, and executive medicine in an effort to provide the Office of the President with the best and most appropriate medical and dental care anywhere in the world.
LTC Jones will illustrate the unique role of deploying telemedicine in an environment where protecting the President of the United States is the primary mission. He will explore various case studies in which the technology has improved access to specialty care and improved the “team sport” concept of health care delivery, and will also discuss his vision of pre-hospital and combat telehealth programs.
