While many healthcare organizations have been utilizing technological innovations to increase access to care and improve engagement for years, the COVID-19 pandemic fueled a dramatic leap towards accessibility through virtual engagement tools, with the industry shifting from .3% of all provider care occurring via telehealth in 2019 to a staggering 23.6% in 20201. While some utilization will drop post-pandemic, the proven benefits to patient engagement, adherence, and efficiency presented by virtual healthcare technology means that organizations that embrace it as part of their toolkit will have a distinct advantage, and those that fail to keep up risk being left behind.

In his new white paper, Jared Vagy, PT, DPT, OCS, CSCS, explores six strategies healthcare organizations can utilize to leverage virtual engagement tools to more effectively engage their patients and improve outcomes.

Readers will gain the knowledge to:

  • Select the right engagement tools for success with virtual care
  • Train clinical staff and educate patients
  • Integrate virtual care within your clinical care pathways
  • Effectively track results and patient outcomes
