As the healthcare industry seeks to serve patients online, it’s only the first step in a long journey towards virtual-first care.

The idea behind virtual-first care is to have patients start their care journey with a digital interaction. By leaning on technology, healthcare organizations can more easily triage the patient’s care needs, determine the best care setting – in-person care, virtual care, home care, or hybrid care – and drive follow up. And for patients, this means they can more easily start their care journeys anytime and anywhere that works best for them.

Two out of three clinicians said treating patients in virtual-only or hybrid care settings best fits their lifestyle. Nearly three in four patients plan to receive “some” or “all” of their care through telemedicine after the pandemic. So what’s holding us back from getting there?

Join executives from leading digital health organizations for a conversation on :

  • How healthcare stakeholders can use technology to seamlessly connect digital and in-person touchpoints and coordinate care across the entire care ecosystem
  • The barriers hindering adoption of a virtual-first care model
  • How a virtual-first model can improve care outcomes and drive cost savings
  • Potential use cases for healthcare organizations to leverage virtual care to triage a patient’s care need, determine the best care setting, and drive follow up care — whether virtually, in-person or at the home.
  • Tangible steps different healthcare stakeholders can take to help drive adoption
