Summary

This abstract was presented at the 2012 eHealth conference to demonstrate:

1) how telemedicine was integrated into the regional bariatric program to help eliminate geographic and mobility related barriers to access and support seamless interprofessional evaluation and care that would otherwise be unavailable and

2) describe the care processes evaluated to document information requirements and workflows in order to create an ACD framework to support clinical providers.
