HANYS Recovery and Preparedness Webinar Series: Moving Telehealth and Digital Care beyond COVID-19 - Webconference
August 17, 2020
2 - 3 p.m.
Registration is open to HANYS Members and Non Members
The COVID-19 pandemic has made telehealth a household word. Virtual care has become a necessary and accepted care delivery solution, successfully bringing the doctor’s office into the home. With the significant gains telehealth has made during this health crisis, combined with an existing provider shortage, an aging population and the explosion of chronic disease, this is the opportunity to reimagine healthcare delivery. Learn how telehealth solutions – from one-to-many models of care, to digital biomarkers and asynchronous telehealth, chat bots and symptom checkers – can create a fully integrated digital and in-person experience.
- gain an understanding of how telehealth and digital care tools supported ongoing, safe and effective care delivery during the COVID-19 pandemic and the role of telehealth post-pandemic;
- learn about the policy changes made to expand access to telehealth in response to COVID-19 and the flexibilities that need to be made permanent following the national health emergency;
- identify emerging technologies and telehealth solutions that can create fully integrated care delivery and improve the patient experience; and
- identify strategies for integrating these digital care tools into your clinical and operational functions moving forward.

HANYS Recovery and Preparedness Webinar Series
This webinar is part of the HANYS Recovery and Preparedness Webinar Series held every Wednesday at 3 p.m. Additional sessions will take place as needed on Mondays at the same time.
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced healthcare organizations and providers to navigate unprecedented operational and clinical challenges, which will continue as the curve flattens and we move toward recovery.
In the recovery phase, healthcare organizations and providers need to re-evaluate their operations and plans for delivering care in a post-pandemic world. As they plan for the “new normal” and a potential second surge of COVID-19, healthcare leaders must consider their use of telemedicine, infection prevention and control practices, supply chain management and infrastructure changes. To assist with planning for the recovery phase, the sessions will feature national and state experts to explore strategies and considerations for this new phase of the pandemic. Additional sessions are listed below:
