Telemedicine connects patients, providers in Wyoming

Sheridan, Wyo.-based Ptolemy Data Systems has taken a large role in connecting healthcare providers across The Cowboy State since 2009, fulfilling its unexpected role in the state as a "facilitator" for healthcare technology, Healthcare IT News reported. Three ways in which Wyoming has been making strides in the health IT and telemedicine sector, with Ptolemy's help, include: the Converged Management Application videoconferencing technology; prison health services; and the Wyoming Telepsychiatry Project.

CEO Ryan Mulholland told Healthcare IT News that Ptolemy's involvement in telemedicine services "isn't about the money," and instead said that it has more to do with expanding healthcare access. "It's something we get to do for our community," he said. Article
