The effect even spills over from B2C to B2B, because of course employees of companies are consumers, too. “Treasury is becoming a huge advocate for change,” said Julie Qualiato during the panel. “We are seeing more payment types tailored to different consumer preferences,” added Emily Vaughn. It’s ultimately a question of being nimble to keep up with these new expectations.

TTUHSC service area covers 108 counties and 131,459 sq. miles, which is larger than New York, New England, and the District of Columbia combined. The objective of the project, funded by Texas House Bill 479, is to improve patient outcomes by using telemedicine technology to bring the judgment of trauma surgeons into the back of ambulances to assess and direct treatment. Currently, patients can be carried 30, 60, 90 minutes or more in an ambulance to the nearest hospital only to find that the facility is not equipped to handle their needs, or they can be airlifted to a Level I trauma center when their injuries could have been handled in a closer local hospital.
