GETTYSBURG, Pa. (May 24, 2020)—The need for social distancing in the COVID-19 era has forever changed consumer’s attitudes towards telehealth. While the COVID-19 pandemic forced the rapid adoption of telehealth, many believe that consumer adoption and payer support will continue in some form beyond the current crisis.
Faced with the urgency of the COVID-19 pandemic, many provider organizations rushed to implement various forms of virtual services based on telephone, FaceTime, business platforms, and third-party video conferencing solutions. However, the necessary speed of the transition to virtual services may not have resulted in an integrated, frictionless approach to treatment.
To help you understand best practices for optimizing telehealth solutions—even if you’ve already implemented one—Welligent and OPEN MINDS presented an executive web briefing, “Successfully Integrate Telehealth Into Your Clinical Workflow,” on Thursday, May 21, at 1 pm ET.
In this session, Deb Adler, senior associate at OPEN MINDS, and Rich Daly, manager of sales at Welligent, described key strategies to take your telehealth solution to the next level and demonstrated the Welligent Telehealth solution.
“Many provider organizations pivoted to virtual platforms quite rapidly, and are now struggling with the after-effects,” said OPEN MINDS Senior Associate Deb Adler. “Making virtual services a seamless, integrated part of your clinical operational workflow requires a formal, well thought out plan. But if done right, you can turn this challenge into an opportunity that both enhances revenue and streamlines your operation.”
Attendees learned how to take their telehealth platform from a separate, possibly cumbersome add-on born to an integrated, strategic opportunity to streamline clinical workflows, add new service lines or consumer populations, and potentially create new funding streams.
