Health Data Management – The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center has launched a new telemedicine company to aid long-term care staff who are caring for nursing home patients.

Steven Handler, MD, a geriatrician specialist, pushed to form the new venture after seeing too many patients being transferred back to hospital emergency departments because nursing home staff could not get appropriate advice quickly.
