Overview

Today, telehealth is one of the fastest growing sectors in healthcare. It is reshaping the landscape of healthcare delivery in the United States, and is being recognized as the future of global healthcare. Telehealth addresses and achieves the basic tenants of Healthcare Reform: providing the population with access to improved and convenient, high quality patient centric care, enhancing outcomes, while reducing per capita expenditures. Today, nearly 50 percent of hospitals throughout the United States are engaged in telehealth programs. Studies have shown that the benefits of telehealth include significantly improved outcomes, efficient care delivery as well as reduction in mortality rates, hospitalizations, length of stay, readmissions and healthcare costs. Telehealth has greatly enhanced access to quality care in rural areas and patient satisfaction has increased due to its convenience and patient centric approach.

We have created an exciting, high level forum featuring knowledgeable leaders and executives from the nation's leading Hospitals and Health Systems who will share their perspectives, valuable insights and expertise on how to be best equipped for the rapidly evolving and exciting landscape of telehealth. This exclusive event targets senior level executives in order to maximize educational and networking opportunities.

By attending the 2019 Telehealth Summit for Hospitals, you will learn what highly regarded Hospitals and Health Systems are doing to be prepared for the challenges that lie ahead in 2019.

We look forward to seeing you in New Orleans!

Applying Virtual Care and Digital Health to your Patient Access Strategy

Virtual Care delivery models represent a proven innovation opportunity for organizations to improve their patient access to specialty and primary care and consumer loyalty for their brand.  Virtual care requires a range of business and health IT solutions with strategies intended to enhance the clinical, operational, and administrative services of healthcare delivery. It can be leveraged to support a range of patient populations and can be a key business differentiator in adding value to consumers, providers, and payers.

During this workshop we will explore case studies that illustrate the process for evaluating, defining and implementing a Patient Access strategy that incorporates virtual care and digital health solutions to enhance patient experience and drive health system productivity.
