1 Overview CPE credit | Specialized Knowledge
As the health care industry continues its focus on outpatient services to decrease costs and improve care, a shift to virtual care may seem obvious. But are physicians embracing this trend, and how do consumers feel about it? We'll discuss:
- Consumer and physician perceptions of telehealth, remote monitoring, wearables, and other forms of virtual care.
- Challenges virtual care presents and where the divide may be between consumers and physicians.
- Benefits and opportunities health care stakeholders may be able to derive from high volumes of data virtual care that technologies may generate.
Participants will learn results of a new Deloitte study on the anytime, anywhere trend of virtual care.
