Empowering Care Collaboration In A Virtual Care World

Virtual healthcare is changing care delivery and many technology advancements are sweeping the market to help virtual healthcare reach its full potential in improving patient care. In this podcast, Steve Morgan, MD, senior vice president and chief medical information officer at Roanoke, Va.-based Carilion Clinic, and Kim Lewis, RN, BSN, global clinical health solution manager of Lenovo Health, will focus on the moving parts that go into facilitating collaboration among care teams, spanning from clinicians to patients, when using virtual technology like wearbales and apps.

Many health systems are using virtual technology for a variety of reasons, such as cost containment, chronic disease management and to give care access to patients who may reside miles away from a hospital. During the podcast, Dr. Morgan discusses why Carilion Clinic adopted virtual tools to promote care collaboration and the progress the health system has made in reaching its patients in rural areas. Taking on a different perspective, Ms. Lewis will highlight trends she has noted in virtual healthcare during her experience with Lenovo as well as her experience when working as a nurse for several years.

Dr. Morgan and Ms. Lewis will also speak to:

  • How new technologies, such as the cloud, enhance care team collaboration for virtual care
  • The security issues that surface when treating virtual patients and steps to address such concerns
  • What the next three years to five years hold for virtual healthcare
