Virtual Care Management Use Case

Population Health: Using Telemedicine to Improve Engagement with More Patients Across More Settings, with Fewer Resources

Population health management (PHM) has emerged as a means of improving both clinical and financial outcomes in American healthcare, and telemedicine is a crucial component in implementing individual patient care plans. PHM aims for improved care, better outcomes, and lower costs, and telemedicine is a means to achieve these goals. While PHM analytics can identify populations and individuals requiring comprehensive care, telemedicine provides a platform to enhance care with more timely and cost-effective contact with the patient when and where care is needed most. With the tools of telemedicine, it can be easier to provide virtual services to meet a broader array of patient needs, and improve adherence to treatment plans due to convenient access to care providers.
