NEW YORK, Oct. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- In an effort to continuously deliver diverse, stimulating content to its readers, TeleHealth World Magazine recently appointed Dr. Elliot Justin, founder of SwiftMD, to its esteemed editorial advisory board.
As a board-certified emergency physician and current CEO of Pegasus Emergency Group, a leader in emergency department quality and customer satisfaction, Dr. Justin brings with him more than thirty years of experience in the field of emergency medicine. His background gives him a unique perspective on the needs of concerned patients - particularly the lack of options available to them during a health-related emergency.
"Telemedicine will revolutionize healthcare," explained Dr. Justin. "Crucial to this revolution, however, is the ongoing education of physicians, employers and health plan providers about the benefits of telemedicine and the growing need among consumers for healthcare options and flexibility."
TeleHealth World serves the rapidly expanding fields of telehealth, telemedicine and connected healthcare. A comprehensive news and analysis resource for healthcare and technology providers, TeleHealth World is a resource for those who are leading today's revolution in remotely monitored and administered healthcare, medical treatment and fitness/wellness enhancement.
As a member of the board, Dr. Justin will play an active role in the contribution, discussion and selection of relevant, emerging issues surrounding the telemedicine industry.
Dr. Justin continued, "My appointment to the TeleHealth World advisory board affords me the opportunity to assist in the selection of pertinent, timely and informative articles for inclusion in the magazine, thereby ensuring physicians are armed with the information they need to make educated decisions regarding the use of telemedicine."
