Event Description:


The data shows patients want telemedicine options - and they want these options from your practice. If you choose not to offer telemedicine to your patients, a competitor is happy to do it for you. In this presentation, you will develop a better understanding of what patients want, your options for implementing virtual solutions, what to expect in terms of future shifts from office visits to virtual visits, and expected reimbursement changes.


Educational Learning Objectives:

  1. Better understand your telemedicine options – it is not as complicated as you think
  2. Anticipate patient demand and competitive pressure for telemedicine and how these will affect your practice
  3. Learn more about the future of virtual care reimbursement
  4. Prepare to formulate your plan for how virtual medicine is likely to become a large part of your practice in the near future
