About the Conference:

Telehealth is the most rapidly growing sector in the healthcare industry and is changing the way healthcare is delivered. There is a growing demand for telehealth services to reduce the rising cost of healthcare benefits.

Telehealth offers solutions to address many of the challenges facing U.S. employers, health plans and consumers today, including skyrocketing costs, physician shortages, long wait times, absenteeism and lost productivity, to name a few. Also, telehealth reduces unnecessary visits to emergency rooms and urgent care, saving time and money.

Telehealth can transform traditional relationships between patients and providers in new ways. For some, it means using technology to constantly collect and transmit vital signs. For others, it means receiving medical consultations over the internet. Additionally, telehealth has the potential to improve population health and decrease health costs by minimizing expensive resources and ED overcrowding.

This conference will bring together thought leaders in the fields of telehealth to discuss best practices for connected health programs, explore case studies in digital and virtual care, identify critical quality metrics to define success, and uncover greater ROI for applications of emerging technologies. Hear innovative case studies on how telehealth is bringing better healthcare to patients, communities and populations, improving outcomes and reducing costs.

Chairperson’s Opening Remarks

 

8:15am – 9:00am

Creating an Equitable Telehealth Program

Ensuring equitable access to care is a top priority for today's healthcare organizations. Healthcare systems must innovate and build a telehealth system that addressed disparities and improved access to care. This session will explore how your organization can leverage evidence-based strategies to address current barriers to equitable telehealth access and more, including:

-  Barriers to care for reaching diverse patient populations

- Innovative strategies to advance health equity

- Solutions for integrated, secure, patient and provider friendly technology tools

- Establishing a forward thinking, dedicated approach toward greater equity, access and improved outcomes

 

9:00am – 9:45am

Social Determinants of Telehealth

Addressing the social determinants of health of patients can reduce costs and improve their health, and telehealth can play a role in that. Improving health outcomes in rural, impoverished communities will require more than expanding access to quality care. It will require a cross-sector approach to care that integrates services from across the social determinants of health. This integration can best accomplished utilizing telehealth. In this session, learn how telehealth usage changes by age, geography, income, and other demographic factors, and how it can help healthcare providers reach more patients.

 

9:45am – 10:15am

Networking & Refreshments Break

 

10:15am – 11:00am

The Role of Telehealth in an Evolving Health Care Environment

Telehealth programs seem to be popping up everywhere with employers offering services to their employees, healthcare systems implementing programs and national telehealth providers creating standalone offerings. As consumers seek out healthcare experiences that more closely align to the experiences they have in other industries in terms of ease of access, instantaneous answers and transparency, telehealth programs constructed in the right fashion, provide an opportunity to do just that. This session will explore how to develop telehealth solutions that create more consumer-centric healthcare offering.

 

11:00am – 11:45am

How to Increase Patient Engagement with Telehealth

Patient engagement is the backbone to a successful telehealth program. Time and time again studies have shown that patients who are more involved in their care have better outcomes than their less engaged counterparts. But how do you build patient engagement when connecting with patients primarily through a device? This session will explore things to consider when aiming to increase patient engagement (and looking to use telehealth and remote patient monitoring to do it).

 

11:45am – 12:30pm

Thriving through Partnerships with Telehealth Service Providers

Partnering with telehealth service providers aids in population health management by improving care quality, access, affordability and continuity. This session will examine how hospitals and health systems can benefit from partnering with companies, including:

  • Finding and vetting your perfect telehealth partner
  • Key contractual considerations
  • Integrating a telehealth partner into your organization
  • Outcomes and savings from telehealth partnerships

 

12:30pm – 1:30pm

Luncheon

 

1:30pm – 2:15pm

The Benefits of Telehealth in Population Health Management

As hospitals and health systems move toward a fee-for-value payment structure, the focus of care delivery has shifted drastically from more visits to quality outcomes. Population health has become instrumental in managing patients in risk contracts. Telehealth solutions are a clear way to address population health management challenges. This session will examine telehealth can help healthcare providers manage health outcomes across a population of patients.

 

2:15pm – 3:15pm

Panel: Expanding Access to Healthcare with Telehealth

Healthcare organizations are increasingly using telehealth to better meet their patients’ needs and to overcome persistent clinical workforce shortages. Telehealth encompasses a variety of technologies used to deliver virtual medical, health and education services. Telehealth services help address geographic, economic, transportation and linguistic barriers to healthcare access. Because community health centers are required to offer comprehensive services in areas of high need, including sparsely populated rural areas, healthcare organizations are leveraging telehealth to expand access to quality health care services. This session will explore how telehealth is decreasing barriers and increasing access to healthcare.

 

3:15pm – 3:45pm

Networking & Refreshments Break

 

3:45pm – 4:30pm

Improving Rural Healthcare Through Telehealth

About one-fifth of all people in the U.S. live in rural areas. Health disparities continue to be a pressing issue for rural communities, where there are increased mortality rates, a higher prevalence of diseases, and lower life expectancy than in urban areas. While the underlying causes of such disparities are complex, social determinants of health play an important role. An estimated 22.2 million rural residents live in areas with a shortage of healthcare providers. This session will explore how telehealth has enormous potential to enhance rural healthcare over the coming decades, including:

  • How telehealth-guided collaboration between healthcare providers can increase access to certain services and improve health outcomes
  • How provider-to-provider telehealth supports clinicians through consultations, mentoring, continuing medical education, and other services to improve the overall delivery and quality of health care to patients, especially in underserved rural populations

 

 

4:30pm – 5:15pm

Telehealth’s Role in Mental Health Access and Outcomes

From expanding access to mental healthcare to giving patients more choices, telehealth can take care to the next level. This session will explore telehealth’s key role in access to mental health services as well as the integration of behavioral and physical health services, especially for those in underserved communities.

Leveraging Telehealth to Accelerate the Discharge Process and How it Can Help Reduce Readmissions

When patient inflows exceed outflows, hospitals become overwhelmed. And when it comes to reducing readmission rates, setting patients up for success is critical. Post-discharge, telehealth can help. Advances in digital technology have enabled providers to offer more effective videoconferencing and information-sharing capabilities. The potential post-discharge benefits are significant. This session will explore ways that telehealth can help reduce hospital readmissions and expedite the discharge planning process.

 

9:00am – 9:45am

Best Practices for Implementing Virtual Urgent Care

The COVID-19 pandemic quickly challenged healthcare systems, and telemedicine has been used much more to manage acute complaints and divert patients from in-person care. COVID-19 surges, staffing shortages and surgical backlogs are created intense pressure on healthcare providers. Many organizations shifted to a “digital first” strategy to utilize virtual care as a central part of an integrated healthcare model. Building a resilient urgent care program requires the ability to scale expertise, foster collaboration and respond to changing conditions while providing high-quality care. This session will explore best practices for implementing virtual urgent care, including technology requirements, workflows and KPIs.

 

9:45am – 10:15am

Networking & Refreshments Break

 

10:15am – 11:00am

Caring for Patients with Multiple Chronic Conditions Through Telehealth

A key challenge in controlling healthcare expenses is managing patients with chronic diseases. One way of decreasing medical expenditures has been identified as decreasing the total number of visits per patient to doctor’s offices, in order to decrease overhead and overall utilization. Telehealth has been identified as having significant potential in decreasing the volume of visits to outpatient settings. This session will examine modes of delivering care virtually; and key aspects for any organization considering these modes of care: regulatory/reimbursement; impact on clinician resource utilization; organizational/financial barriers; ease of implementation. Topics will include:

  • Ways to decrease costs through virtual care delivery
  • Potential barriers to adoption of virtual care
  • How to best integrate enabling telehealth technologies into programs designed to meet the challenges of this unique patient population

 

11:00am – 11:45am

Telehealth Reimbursement and Billing

COVID-19 has transformed the way healthcare is delivered, and consequently the policies that govern care delivery. Telehealth reimbursement and other regulatory flexibilities enabled healthcare providers to quickly pivot operations for COVID-19, but temporary policies also poised the health policy landscape for significant change after the pandemic. This session will examine the future of telehealth reimbursement policy.

 

11:45am – 12:30pm

The Impact of Telehealth on Care Coordination

Evidence has identified that telehealth can be used across the interdisciplinary team to enable people to navigate the health system and access routine care during an infectious outbreak. The regular use of telehealth may lead to more effective and sustainable models of care. However, the benefits and limitations of this model of service delivery needs to be carefully considered and appropriate training and education provided for all healthcare professionals and patients. This session will examine the impact of telehealth on care continuity.
