Mooney, Jr., president and chief executive officer of the WCA. “This breakfast will be the first step in a much larger effort to forge a strong partnership between the Mr. Latimer and the county’s business community that creates economic opportunity and elevates Westchester as the region’s best place to live, work and play.”

  • Fascinating panel discussion at WCA's HealthTech '17 conference

    “There’s a sense of exciting things happening in telemedicine and technology,” said Dr. Christian Otto of Memorial Sloan Kettering at WCA’s HealthTech ’17, as he began his presentation for the panel Next Generation Telehealth: The Future Is Now. While still evolving, “Telehealth leads to longer survival, a 38% improvement in the quality of life, and 7% fewer urgent care visits.” According to Dr. Otto, telehealth will allow patients to:
    • Include family members (even those living far away) in care decisions;
    • Bring care and monitoring directly into the home;
    • Access healthcare from remote locations without travel;
    • See a doctor without missing work or needing childcare.
    But will people use this technology?
