Integrating Telemedicine into Urgent Care - Part 1 and 2
Part 1: Thursday, July 25 at 1PM CST
The decision has been made to move forward with Telemedicine as a competitive advantage or to stay competitive as virtual Urgent Care expands. A thoughtful process, charter and a project plan need to be followed. This course walks you through designing your Use cases and what the downstream implications are for the added services. Based on your Use Cases and goals the next step is creating a gap analysis of functionalities needed to vend for the TM Platform best suited for the clinic. Vendor analysis can be tricky unless you have developed specific business requirements based on the capabilities defined. The course then walks you through contracting issues along with pre and post implementation must haves and pitfalls to have a successful launch.

Part 2: Thursday, August 15 at 1PM CST
Integrating Telemedicine into existing workflows is critical for the success of a program. This course focuses on the more important workflow and process issues that need to be considered. Staffing models need to fit as seamlessly as possible into current hiring, training and coverage patterns but will probably evolve with increased virtual volume. Consideration of data integration and documentation practices should be carefully tested and as simple to execute as possible. We will discuss setting reasonable expectations and growth metrics as well as measuring the success of a program. What comes next in terms of horizontal and vertical virtual services that can be leveraged for expansion will also be discussed..
