Edwards joins an elite group of healthcare changemakers
LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#DigitalHealth--Jamey Edwards, CEO of Cloudbreak Health, LLC (“Cloudbreak”), a leading unified telemedicine solutions provider, was named an HIMSS Digital Influencer and Changemaker. This groundbreaking program was built to enrich the digital experience for HIMSS members and audiences, and elevate the discussion around solving healthcare’s challenges. Edwards is one of 10 industry thought leaders selected for the initiative’s debut year.
“Our mission at Cloudbreak Health has been to humanize healthcare and address healthcare disparities so that everyone has ready access to high quality care,” says Edwards. “This program is directly aligned with that mission and I am grateful to be able to support HIMSS in their efforts to have all of us be the change we want to see in our industry.”
The Cloudbreak Health platform was designed to allow providers to connect, communicate and care for patients wherever they are located, and in whatever language they speak, via one single collaborative video platform. Cloudbreak’s system is one of the first in the country to follow the patient from the home to the hospital and back again, enabling a patient’s existing continuum of care with telemedicine. Additionally, Cloudbreak pioneered many industry firsts, including being the first company to bring a certified medical language interpreter into a video telemedicine call.
Follow Edwards on his Twitter and LinkedIn to engage in the discourse that will cover digital health, innovation, telemedicine, interoperability and more. Edwards will attend the 2020 HIMSS Global Health Conference & Exhibition from March 9–13, 2020 in Orlando, Fla.
