The Intelligent Guide to Acute Telemedicine

When it comes to assessing the future of healthcare in the U.S., one thing is clear: there’s no shortage of forces driving change and disruption in this vital industry. Hospital executives confront multiple and often competing challenges:

• Meet or Exceed Clinical Guidelines
• Make Care More Accessible
• Shift to Value-Based Care
• Specialty Shortages
• Aging Population
• and more!

How can hospitals create and sustain a successful model that balances the natural tensions between financial performance and patient care? Increasingly, hospitals and health systems are turning to acute telemedicine for some of the answers.

Regulatory requirements, payment systems, and reimbursement models will continue to evolve. Studies predict that patient populations will continue to grow as the number of qualified new specialists shrinks. Large-scale crisis events, like the pandemic, will continue to challenge hospitals to find new and more effective ways to mobilize and coordinate a rapid response. And clinical advances will continue to raise the bar on how quickly and effectively physicians can save and improve lives.
