A guide to the best practices for launching a virtual health program is needed more now than ever before. Just about every week you’ll hear the story of a new virtual care adopter who’s launched a groundbreaking program or there’s a new webinar or panel discussion unpacking its many virtues. Don’t get us wrong, virtual health expertise is priceless. But whether you’re a beginner or a virtual care delivery veteran – how to apply virtual modalities to both local and industry-wide healthcare challenges – isn’t always straightforward.
The COVID-19 pandemic sparked a new rise of innovations and ideas. At the same time, being new to telehealth can be really daunting. At GlobalMed, we’re reminded of that every day when people ask for help. The use cases we’re supporting run the gamut of simple video consultations to more complex and remote care deployments. And the use cases for virtual care are expanding along with the demand for secure technologies that can scale and grow with an organization.
The people we speak to might be deploying telehealth for different reasons, but they are all asking the same question: how can virtual care delivery help me?
That’s why we’ve just published our latest ebook: Best Practices Guide to Launching a Virtual Health Program. This guide will walk you through those critical initial planning steps, understanding the technology, and all the way through to training your staff and measuring performance.
Maybe you’ve already graduated from your freshman telehealth days. But even if you’re operating at the intermediate level or beyond, we still think you’ll find some useful advice in our guide. Zen monk and author Shunryu Suzuki said, “In the beginner’s mind there are many possibilities, but in the expert’s mind there are few.” As this quote indicates, sometimes being too close to a subject can limit your sense of new possibilities. Innovation and expansion are always worth exploring – and your next implementation might be right around the corner.
A Roadmap to Virtual Health
By reading our guide, you’ll find how to:
- Create your virtual health program roadmap
- Understand how to navigate reimbursement and regulatory policies
- Evaluate the right solution for your facility and patients
- Master implementation and onboarding
- Run a successful telemedicine program
- Go beyond disconnected telehealth siloes to integrated virtual care
Designing a New Era in Healthcare
At the end of the day, a successful virtual health program has to achieve more than positive clinical outcomes. It needs to fit into an organization’s fiscal and healthcare strategies and scale for the future. That’s especially true in our current global pandemic crisis – and it’s why we want to help you not only launch your program but drive the maximum advantages. Plenty of teams fail precisely because they invested in a virtual care platform or telehealth app without the right groundwork and guidance. Our new ebook can help on both counts to ensure your virtual health program takes you where you want to go.
