Implementing a Viable Telemedicine Strategy with an Integrated Program Design 2.0
As our national healthcare insurance and payment reform evolves to improve the alignment of value based business incentives, Telehealth and Telemedicine services represent disruptive service deliver models with increasing acceptance and adoption. In order to achieve payer and provider financial objectives during payment reform, planning for both short term (fee for service, volume-based payments) and longer term (accountable care, value-based payments) reimbursements should be considered. The ability to establish, adopt, adapt, and sustain consumer Telehealth and hospital Telemedicine service lines, program integration is required. Telemedicine Integrated Program Design 2.0 will include examples of how Telehealth and Telemedicine will address provider challenges with Patient Access based on a foundation of objective data and analytics.
During this workshop we will discuss critical success factors for Telemedicine programs to deliver scalable and sustainable outcomes for key stakeholders, including the newly engaged patients and their extended health networks.
