The concept of virtual medicine has existed for decades, yet the U.S. health care field has been slow to adopt enterprise-wide telehealth thus far. Most organizations start with a small pilot telehealth program, but this is not case for Thomas Jefferson University (TJU).
TJU launched a full enterprise-wide telehealth program to expand patient care, while also extending access to TJU physicians, peers and specialists throughout the hospital’s health care network — whether on-site or externally — to provide the same services patients are accustomed to in a manner that is more convenient, faster and less costly for patients and providers.
As health care costs and consumer expectations continue to rise, health systems will need to change the way they deliver care. In this webinar, learn how the right technology and workflows can aid in designing telehealth programs that not only provide on-demand care to patients, but also connect existing patients with their care providers and specialists.
What You Will Learn:
- Telehealth is more than technology. With the right workflows and operations, telehealth can move beyond general medicine to treat more complex care needs
- By removing the barriers to care, such as the traditional reliance on physical examinations, you can take care of patients that otherwise would not have been taken care of
- How to leverage technology to pair up patients with the right clinicians at the right time
- Extend consults using secure multi-party video to include family members or specialists, to immediately address the issue in one virtual consult
