The pandemic’s onset accelerated the adoption of telehealth and virtual care, but temporary changes in regulations and reimbursement will no longer be available once the public health emergency ends.
PYA Principal Martie Ross encourages providers to re-evaluate and re-launch their digital health strategies now to engage patients and communities and to strengthen relationships with regional providers. She spoke on this topic at the annual Montana Hospital Association Health Summit.
Martie’s presentation, titled “The Future of Telehealth and Virtual Care,” highlighted digital health strategies and tactics to support the successful implementation and maintenance of telehealth programming. She covered:
- COVID-19’s impact on adoption and acceptance of telehealth and virtual services.
- Post-pandemic regulatory and reimbursement environment for telehealth and virtual services.
- Key components of a digital health strategy and its value for future organizational success.
- Management of obstacles that impede successful implementation, and maintenance of a digital health strategy.
- Evaluation of success and program modifications.
The Summit, held virtually April 13-15, also covered interdisciplinary topics and focused on industry trends.
