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.
