Telemedicine organization Teladoc recently announced it is partnering with Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center (Cincinnati Children’s) to develop a consumer pediatric-specific telehealth platform. The telehealth platform will be aimed at serving children who have unique needs.
In the coming months, Cincinnati’s Children’s will advise Teladoc on pediatric-specific workflows, clinical requirements, and user experiences as they work together to create the new technology. Leading the team behind the development of the platform will be Steve Davis, M.D., Cincinnati Children’s chief operating officer. It is anticipated that the platform’s development will begin during the second quarter of this year, becoming available to other pediatric hospitals and medical centers in early 2020.
