Solutions, Strategies and Success: How Can Telemedicine Help?

10:30am - 11:30am Wednesday, March 7
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Palazzo E

Description

The lure and idea of telehealth is often irresistible - using technology to efficiently bring care to wherever the patients are, no matter how remote. Unfortunately, even after decades of work and millions in federal funds, the promise of telemedicine to eliminate many geographic disparities has not been uniformly realized. Telemedicine has been a game changer for several healthcare ecosystems despite ongoing challenges facing the industry. Learn how one health system used telehealth to improve the quality of care and patient outcomes while lowering its costs, developed collaborative care teams from a distance, and built new partnerships with stakeholders outside the hospital walls. This session will address barriers, opportunities and the future of telehealth in this thought-provoking session.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Propose solutions for concerns facing the telehealth industry
  • Identify how health systems grow successful telehealth programs
  • Discuss national efforts to address telemedicine barriers
  • Explain how healthcare ecosystems leverage technology to develop collaborative care teams, build partnerships outside existing health systems, and improve overall outcomes
