We’ll be kicking things off at 10 a.m. Tuesday with a discussion about how telehealth services are changing the way patients interact with doctors and other care providers. Long oversees in-house innovations at Providence, including new approaches to direct-to-consumer telehealth, and also works with Providence Venture Fund portfolio companies to develop and test their health tech products.

GeekWire editor Todd Bishop and I will be leading the discussion. People who tune into the Facebook Live stream will also have a chance to submit their own questions and thoughts for the discussion.

GeekWire’s Health Tech Podcast, sponsored by Providence St. Joseph Health’s Digital & Innovation Team, tells the stories of technology innovators and scientists pushing boundaries with new approaches and fresh ideas in digital health and wellness.
