About the Conference

Telehealth today is revolutionizing healthcare delivery through improved patient outcomes, reduced costs, and the ability to deliver the right care at the right time. Telehealth is continuing to advance and expand across the nation and globally, resulting in exciting, innovative and specialized new programs that are transforming patient centric care. Many organizations have embraced Telehealth and others are quickly following suit and planning to develop and implement their own Telehealth platforms.

Telehealth is at the forefront of today’s healthcare, and it is rapidly transforming the way traditional healthcare delivery is provided. It achieves the tenets of value-based patient driven care, enhances patient satisfaction, engagement and outcomes, and reduces healthcare spending. Telehealth and virtual care are evolving at a rapid pace and is facilitating changes in reimbursement and policy.

This is the only conference on Telehealth that will equip you and your organization with exciting and innovative practices, case studies and tools to succeed with implementing telehealth programs, expanding existing platforms, while reducing healthcare costs and improving patient outcomes.

Workshop – Tuesday, October 5, 2021
12:45pm – 2:45pm
Recognizing Telehealth’s Pros and Cons Can Help Providers Improve Access and Outcomes

When you’re holding a hammer, everything looks like a nail. Abraham Maslow’s famous quote seems especially apt for providers contemplating unique ways to use virtual health technologies. New people-centered telehealth care models continue to proliferate as non-traditional care providers, suppliers, and adjacent supporters enter the market. While collaboration is the name of the game, it’s easy for providers to get lost as they attempt to piece together virtual health systems that make both clinical and economic sense. Providers have many choices for tapping into the humanizing power of telehealth ecosystems, but they should nonetheless deploy this technology only where it can have a positive impact. If you’re struggling with how and where to use virtual health technologies, this interactive workshop session is for you. An in-person workshop that guarantees hands-on participation, attendees will share perspectives on how telehealth technology innovation is affecting their organizations, and how and why care model redesign is the key to driving effective telehealth utilization.

This session will cover:

Digital coordination between care channels and platforms
Rationalizing ecosystem partners and offerings to determine the right fit for your organization
Navigating the shift from in-person to on-the-go to at-home care, and how care model redesign is critical to success (and where to start…)
