TeleRespiratory Care: Bryan Wattier’s Thought-Provoking Talk at Reliable Medical Respiratory Round Up Event
At rtNOW, we are always at the forefront of innovation in the realm of respiratory care, and our co-founder and VP of Program Development, Bryan Wattier, M.Ed., RRT, recently demonstrated this commitment at the Reliable Medical Respiratory Round Up event.
In a sea of healthcare professionals and industry leaders, Bryan stood out, highlighting the critical issues and potential solutions within the respiratory care industry. His focus was on the significant role of telehealth in shaping the future of respiratory therapy, an arena where rtNOW is leading the charge.
Bryan noted, “The confluence of the ongoing pandemic, persistent staffing shortages, and significant alterations in Medicare policies have necessitated the respiratory profession to innovate and evolve.” As pioneers in this space, we at rtNOW are making strides in creating efficient and high-quality telerespiratory workflows, leveraging our strengths as a clinically rooted business process outsourcing company.
With the shift towards value-based care, the healthcare landscape is changing. No longer is it enough to provide care in volumes; the value each interaction offers to the patient is paramount. Bryan stressed the importance of this mindset change for respiratory therapists, advocating for a stronger focus on delivering value-centric services within their respective departments and leadership teams.
Echoing rtNOW’s ethos, Bryan stated, “Our adept use of telehealth technology to bring respiratory therapy providers face-to-face with colleagues and patients is evidence that relationships are crucial in healthcare.” We stand by this sentiment and are at the vanguard of promoting a patient-centric approach, fortifying patient-provider relationships even from a distance.
Leveraging telehealth technology, we are not only reducing overhead costs but also ensuring that the highest quality of care is provided by the most skilled and trained respiratory therapists, no matter where they or the patients are located. This aligns with our mission at rtNOW – to deliver unparalleled care, anytime, anywhere.
Bryan’s visionary insights inspired the audience and showcased the potential of telehealth to revolutionize the future of respiratory care. His vision of a future where quality care is accessible to all, regardless of location, embodies the dedication and commitment we bring to the healthcare community at rtNOW.
In his words: “Value-based care, facilitated by telehealth technology, is the future of healthcare. And we, at rtNOW, are proud to be at the helm.” As we enter this new era of telerespiratory care, we eagerly anticipate the transformative changes it will bring to patient care and the broader healthcare industry.
