“The Telehealth Roadmap: Delivering Outstanding Patient Experiences in the Virtual World”

 

Here’s the deal: telehealth has always been on the sidelines. It’s been a tool that some clinics have used when appropriate, but regulations and reimbursement guidelines have made it relatively inconsequential in the greater landscape of healthcare delivery. Then, the world experiences a crisis: the novel coronavirus. Leading to clinic closures, extreme social distancing, and a drive to limit social & physical contact between people, this virus left many clinics in turmoil. What once was standard care delivery became extremely limited, or non-existent.

 

That caused many clinics and organizations to embrace to telehealth. In fact, as part of Rafi’s consulting work for the State of Georgia, he was able to play a key role in drafting the clinical & operational guidelines that the state’s Department of Behavioral Health & Developmental Disabilities used to roll out their telehealth & virtual service delivery programs.

As we’ve previously discussed, Clinics “jumping” into telehealth often commoditize their own practice and endanger patient experience and satisfaction. One thing is certain: the impact of poor patient experience is AMPLIFIED when the patient isn’t on-site. If you’re moving to adopt telehealth, you MUST understand how to deliver real, human connections and experiences in that new environment. 

 

On top that that, healthcare will never be the same. Since “everyone” is adopting some form of telehealth or virtual healthcare service delivery, it can only be assumed that this will continue, even after this crisis has passed. Clients and patients will likely see the value & convenience of receiving telehealth services and will seek those opportunities out in the future. We want to help clinicians prepare to go “direct to consumer” with their marketing to capture this opportunity and bring in new patients.

 

And that brings us to this project:

 

For years we have been masters of the patient experience. We’ve done the research. We’ve sat down with multiple experts who have successfully implemented teleahealth into their practices & clinics. We’ve also taken our existing framework for delivering The Ultimate Patient Experience, and tailored it specifically for clinicians to deliver services virtually without any negative impact on patient engagement.
