I recently contributed to a Linkedin discussion of TELEMEDICINE and how it could impact Seniors and Less-mobile Patients. I was asked to join in because my digital home and telecom technology perspective adds to that of medical practitioners, and I took the opportunity to share my top 10 list of healthcare issues from a home healthcare perspective. I crafted the list to stimulate thinking among healthcare professionals and now share it on my blog at http://www.mhealthtalk.com/2011/08/top-10-healthcare-issues/
