During the past few decades, telehealth has tried repeatedly to become an important part of the healthcare system. Although the foundation was present, this form of healthcare never became a fully integrated part of the healthcare field. The CTO of Virtual Health, Jack Plotkin, believes this might be changing. Over the course of his career, he has become a leading name in the evolution of healthcare. Now, Plotkin believes the tools are there for telehealth to become an integral part of the healthcare system. This will lead to a change that will make healthcare more accessible to everyone.
Wireless Technology has Improved
Plotkin believes that this time, telehealth is here to stay. This is due, in large part, to the advances in the technological field over the past few years. This technology plays an important role in doctors’ ability to gather important information about patients over an extended period of time. There are devices that can now measure important information such as oxygen saturation, respiratory rate, heart rate, blood pressure, and other important pieces of information. Then, doctors can use this information to look at the trends in these important signs over a period of time.
In addition, the costs of these devices have started to drop. In prior years, even if these devices were available, they were far too expensive to become a regular part of the healthcare system. Now, with the price point of these devices starting to fall, Plotkin feels that they will become more common. With an ability to both lower the cost of healthcare and increase its accessibility and value to both doctors and patients, telehealth is ready to take a front seat in the healthcare field.

Gulf Coast Western is a unique company that partners with other oil industry companies to develop businesses throughout the Gulf Coast Region. As part of its partnership with Join Ventures, it manages the oil and gas reserves and businesses for the company. Doing this ensures that reserves are acquired and managed in a streamlined manner, the reserves and industry are developed to its full potential, and that the infrastructure of all enterprises within the partnership is sound.
Gulf Coast Western is able to reduce the risk factor associated with these types of ventures by managing these oil and gas enterprises from the top down. Founded in Texas in the late ’70s, the business has grown from a family-run operation to a multi-state operation that has formed partnerships throughout its decades-long history. It is these partnerships that have allowed the business to become what it is today, strengthening the company through the acquisition of knowledge, know-how, and technology that can be used to the benefit of all.
The focus of the company does not owe all of its success to partnerships though, but research and exploration. The research activities and investment into technologies that allow for calculated exploration have resulted in new activity for the business that includes collaborations with other companies nationwide and potential for further development. Gulf Coast Western is in an incredible position to increase its outflow of product and revenue, gain partners, and collaborate with businesses within the industry that will only further serve to strengthen their position in the region.
