Telehealth: The Importance of Clinical Quality and Oversight

  • Event Date:
  • Event Time: Noon Central

The value of telehealth is divided into two key metrics – cost and quality – and is becoming increasingly important as the telehealth industry continues to evolve. The cost equation is simple. It includes the unit price of health care and the rate of utilization. However, the quality equation is more complex. Health systems must ensure their telehealth programs provide the same clinical quality and safety of care as brick and mortar treatment for both patients and physicians.

This webinar offers insight to clinical quality measures for a successful consumer telehealth program, including quality assurance oversight, protocols when remotely sharing clinical documentation and information with community physicians, and peer review of patient charts or clinical records.

Join us to learn how providing the highest level of quality for patients and clinical staff is key to the success of consumer telehealth programs. Hear how this is critical as health systems and hospitals look to telehealth to enhance health care value and achieve better outcomes.

What You Will Learn:

  • The importance of telehealth quality assurance and oversight
  • How to recruit, credential and train providers to deliver quality, remote care
  • Review evidence-based clinical practice guidelines for the remote treatment of conditions
  • How to implement necessary and desirable “guardrails” around care delivery
  • Why monitoring, measuring and reporting on established performance indicators matters
