Lifeline Television Program: Health Information Exchange and Health 2.0

Last month I had the opportunity to tape a television segment on Health Information Exchange and Health 2.0 for Lifeline, a weekly 30 minute public television program focusing on health and Medicare information for West Virginians. The segment started running this week and should run through the month of January. 

The show is produced by West Virginia Medical Institute to help educate West Virginians on a variety of health, Medicare and healthy living topics. Marc McCombs, WVMI's Director of Corporate Communications hosts the weekly shows. Many of Lifeline's topics are also covered in WVMI's companion print newsletter, also called Lifeline.

Lifeline airs on the West Virginia Library Television Network in over 200,000 households throughout the state. Lifeline airs every week in the Charleston area on Suddenlink Channel 17 at the following times:
  • 11:00 AM Tuesday
  • 5:00 PM Tuesday
  • 11:00 PM Tuesday
  • 5:00 AM Wednesday
  • 2:00 PM Saturday 
You can find the channels for other cable systems airing the program around West Virginia by going to the Lifeline webpage. Also, the Lifeline page lists some of the archive shows. Below is a teaser clip from the show.
