California and Arizona have led the charge in Telehealth advancements as the population and traffic increases in the areas have made it difficult for patients to get to their doctor's office or clinic.

Telepiphany was an early adopter and supporter of Telehealth, providing solutions for Stanford Hospital to use Cisco for their employee on-campus Dermatology clinic. I also designed and oversaw the implementation of Cisco Telepresence with the San Francisco 49ers' team physician, located on the Stanford campus. This was one of the first installations in the NFL.

I have additionally had the opportunity to deploy similar solutions at Scottsdale HealthCare (Honor Health) and Stanford Children's Hospital for remote Psychiatric sessions.

I have a great passion for the deployment and use of Telehealth as it has greatly benefited me when I was a patient.
