Bricks and Mortar of a Telehealth Initiative

6:00pm - 7:00pm Thursday, March 8
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Palazzo E

Description

Travel the collaborative innovation path through the development of a custom built application that seamlessly integrates with an electronic health record through the use of a telehealth program. This initiative is about patient-centered care utilizing a telehealth program to manage valvular heart disease patients after invasive transcatheter valve procedures and reduce all-cause 30-day readmissions. The true value of this collaborative journey is that the program offers scalable infrastructure designed to monitor a variety of chronic health conditions, elicit patient participation in self-care, and integrate intra-professional specialties. Here is your opportunity to meet with the clinical and IT professionals who learned how to speak each other’s language and understand workflow to develop an effective and integrated telehealth monitoring program. Pack your suitcase for a wild ride through pitfalls, lessons learned and team success.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Identify at risk patient populations that would benefit from an organized transitional care model based on remote patient monitoring and telehealth management
  • Illustrate the steps required to develop an automated telehealth program as it pertains to management of chronic health conditions
  • Develop an appropriate project framework that includes all the necessary disciplines, roles and responsibilities
