Tuesday, October 25th, 2016 | 1:00pm - 2:00pm CT

Hospitalists and intensivists changed the way in-patient care is managed and monitored in many health systems. Will ‘virtualists’ be the new title for providers who manage care planning and management in virtual ambulatory care scenarios? Hear how EMR-integrated telehealth can deliver value-based care that meets or exceeds key incentive reimbursement performance metrics.

Can EMR-integrated telehealth deliver cost-effective results for health systems enrolled in Accountable Care, Medicare Advantage or DSRIP incentive programs? What are the potential upsides from applying telehealth best practices, technology and services to HEDIS and MIPS measurements? Can telehealth-based patient engagement drive patient portal enrollment and utilization?

Learning Points:

  • Key point-of-care benefits to patients and providers from EMR-integrated telehealth services at health systems
  • Moving from telehealth as a limited service that only addresses low acuity encounters to telehealth as a fully integrated part of primary care and specialty clinical and revenue workflow.
  • Making telehealth a patient engagement and loyalty differentiator for health systems and driving patient portal registration and utilization.
