Jay Sanders, M.D.

Dr. Sanders is the CEO of The Global Telemedicine Group, Professor of Medicine (Adjunct) at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and a Founding Board Member and President Emeritus of the American Telemedicine Association. Known to many as the “Father of Telemedicine,” he developed the first statewide telemedicine system; the first Correctional telemedicine program; the first tele-homecare technology, called “The Electronic House Call” and the first telemedicine kiosk. His consulting activities have included NASA, DOD, HHS, the FCC, State Governments, WHO and multiple academic institutions and Fortune 500 companies. In 1994, Dr Sanders introduced telemedicine capability to the then Assistant Secretary of Defense (Health Affairs), Dr. Steven C Joseph; that culminated in the initiation of the use of this technology within DOD. He was subsequently asked to serve as the sole civilian representative on the DOD Telemedicine Board of Directors with the Surgeons General of the Army, Navy and Air Force. During the Clinton Administration, he represented the USA to the G8 nations for telemedicine and was appointed by former HHS Secretary Leavitt to the Chronic Care Workgroup Committee.

In 1970, Jay developed and started the first Division of General Medicine in the country at the University of Miami, where he was Professor of Medicine and Chief of Medicine at Jackson Memorial Hospital. Other academic appointments include being Professor of Medicine and Surgery at the Medical College of Georgia, where he was Director of the Telemedicine Institute; Visiting Professor of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania; and Visiting Professor at Yale University School of Medicine.

Dr. Stephen Hochschuler

Stephen Hochschuler, M.D., is co-founder and chairman emeritus of the Texas Back Institute (TBI) and had attended Columbia College in New York for his undergraduate, followed by medical school at Harvard, where he studied general surgery and psychiatry. After an internship and general surgery residency at the Harvard Surgical Service at the Boston City Hospital, Dr. Hochschuler served in the Air Force from 1971 to 1973. Stephen played an integral part in developing the MRI for spine, bringing the artificial disc to the U.S., and facilitating the development of the pedicle screw fixation system first implanted by Art Steffee, M.D.

The future, Steve Hochschuler decided 40 years ago, is telemedicine. “All those years ago I helped Harvard develop a telemedicine apparatus to the tune of $125k per workstation. Now the pandemic has necessitated telemedicine, but it is incredibly cost efficient. I have just raised funds for a telemedicine company and am putting together a digital health system that incorporates a navigator to tell patients who they are seeing, where, and what their copay will be. The landscape remains in flux and as such is very exciting.” At 78 years old, Dr. Hochschuler is still traveling approximately 25-30% of the time, visiting companies, attending surgeon meetings, spending time with TBI colleagues and devoting his seemingly inexhaustible energy to creating the next future in spine surgery.
