Sam Schmidt Makes Unique Indy Technology Pit StopRobert Gottlieb
May 25, 2017
Indianapolis, IN May 24, 2017: May in Indianapolis is a nonstop event, especially when you are Sam Schmidt, former Indy Racing League driver and current Verizon IndyCar Series team co-owner. Despite endless engagements surrounding the INDYCAR Grand Prix, the Indianapolis 500 and the first ever head-to-head semi-autonomous race against Mario Andretti, Sam Schmidt found time to spend with TeleMed 2020, Inc. an Indianapolis-based telehealth company.
Sam, an entrepreneur and investor, and Alan Symons, Chairman of AGS Capital met with Rob Gottlieb, the CEO of TeleMed 2020, Inc. at their eastside Indianapolis office. Discussion included how emerging technology and research holds the promise of curing ailments and improving access, affordability, and quality of care.
“We are privileged to welcome Sam and share how we see telehealth technology impacting care delivery,” Gottlieb commented. “Technology is a game changer. It will forever change the care and patient experience, in a positive way. Technology is quickly reducing the information gaps that exists between in-person patient visits and is expanding convenient access to care. We strive to accelerate the rate at which this technology is being leveraged to transform the lives of people around the world.”
Reflecting on his foundation’s, Conquer Paralysis Now, goal of investing 20 million dollars in paralysis research grants and prizes, Sam commented, “This type of technology clearly is the way to go for the future. To be able to track patient progress and vitals post procedures is not only a huge savings for the providers, but also a better quality of care for the patient. TeleMed 2020 has a solution for the future.”
After a 1:14 hour stop, Sam was back on the road readying for an afternoon of scheduled activities at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
