Broadcast Date: Wednesday, June 8, 2016
This on-demand webinar offers insights from the 2016 Telemedicine Industry Benchmark Survey report’s co-author and two experts in Healthcare law and regulatory issues. The panel reviewed important takeaways and key findings from the 2016 telemedicine survey and discussed current telemedicine trends identified in the survey.
Attendees were primarily approaching telemedicine with a single platform to address all of their specialties or settings of care. Almost three quarters of telemedicine programs were engaged in clinician and patient consults with specialists, with half of attendees’ programs also supporting direct consumer to physician telemedicine and/or peer-to-peer telemedicine.
“I think it’s interesting how often the word patient appears in those top objectives and success factors, it’s no secret that telemedicine aligns very nicely with population health management,” said Mason Reid. “When a provider is really making a serious effort towards population health management, their telemedicine interests correlate with that.”
Topics covered include:
- The move toward enterprise telemedicine
- Key contributors to telemedicine return on investment (ROI)
- Common telemedicine objectives and factors associated with success
- Program management structure
