Virtual Medicine: The Future of Care Delivery and Care Setting, Hospital and Home

September 23, 2021 | Webinar

Presented by the HIMSS Physician Committee

COVID-19 challenged us in ways we never imagined. It also made us embrace innovation to ensure patients could receive the medical care they needed. One result is "virtual medicine" becoming a household name. Physicians and patients turned to this option in much higher volumes over the past year, and medical experts see it as a sustainable option for many going forward.

What does this mean for healthcare? Join the HIMSS Physician Committee at this virtual event to explore future opportunities for acute care telemedicine; how home health devices assist in monitoring, testing and managing chronic disease care remotely; and the cybersecurity requirements to protect patient data in the process. Gain insights from a panel of experts on ambulatory care, acute care, government relations and more.

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize opportunities for asynchronous care to ensure continuity for chronic disease management with higher patient engagement and more efficient use of healthcare resources.
  • Gain insights into interoperability opportunities with home health devices and EMRs.
  • Discuss the future of acute care telemedicine and its global reach.
