COVID-19

WEBINAR: Vaccination Scheduling, Administration, and Documentation in a Digital World

April 06, 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic is the first mass vaccination effort in decades and it revealed cracks in our healthcare infrastructure. In the beginning of the vaccine rollout in many states, scheduling websites were unable to handle the traffic and to limit the number of appointments scheduled to the number of vaccine doses available. Most providers had no coordinated waitlist method for ensuring that vaccines did not go to waste, even in the face of no-show appointments. Additionally, everyone is now having to deal with the issue that has plagued parents of school-age children for decades: trying not to misplace the vaccination record.

In this session, we explore how digital technologies (Vaccine Passport and Virtual Front Desk) can help enable a more efficient scheduling process, deliver a touchless patient intake process effortlessly and accurately document the vaccination event, and allow the patient to access his or her vaccination record from any digital device. 

This webinar will explore:

  • Issues related to digital patient scheduling
  • Digital solutions for enabling touchless patient intake
  • Strategies for capturing vaccination information automatically for digital proof

WEBINAR: The Case For a Learning Health System - Lessons From COVID

March 11, 2021

When COVID-19 spread across the country, it took months for hospitals to piece together the best treatment options, share those learnings and for providers to adopt them. The traditional medical approach is too slow for today’s public health crises. 

It's time for the American healthcare system to learn from the past and accelerate best practices. We can build systems that combine knowledge from providers with machine learning to intelligently apply that information to digital clinical pathways – giving providers the best of what's learned in the profession at any given time. Experts call this a “Learning Health System.” 

Hear from a panel of experts as they discuss the importance of a Learning Health System, digital clinical pathways, and the impact on healthcare quality. 

You will learn: 

 

  • Why traditional approaches to formulating, publishing, and evolving clinical guidelines are too slow for a public health crisis like a natural disaster or a pandemic 
  • How adopting digital clinical pathways can help mitigate public health crises and improve healthcare 
  • The definition of Learning Health System and how it can improve the quality of healthcare

WEBINAR: How Providers are Scaling Virtual Care: Best Practices and Lessons Learned from the Leaders

February 03, 2021

The pandemic reshaped healthcare’s utilization of virtual care. Almost overnight, providers quickly mobilized telehealth programs, reshaped audio-only check-ins, and revamped patient engagement solutions. As healthcare leaders refine and grow these programs over the coming months, our experts detail the strategies and practices to help organizations scale from pilots to enterprise-wide, comprehensive virtual care deployments.

 

Experts convened to create virtual care experiences where the technology is “invisible” to the patients and providers. In their work together, they were able to scale technology and operations for a home monitoring program to 60,000 patients across regions and conditions – within 12 months.

 

Topics:

  • How to bolster provider and patient adoption and buy-in of telehealth and remote patient monitoring
  • Best-in-class strategies for systems integration; data management; and device selection, procurement, and support
  • Approaches for frictionless patient engagement, enrollment, and onboarding experiences
  • Results from studies assessing the return on investment – including member and clinical satisfaction scores, clinical outcomes, and changes in the utilization of healthcare services

Panel #2: Prioritizing Equality in COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution

eHI's Director of Strategy and Programs Wanneh Dixon joined Damika Barr, JD from Verily Life SciencesAnna Basevich from ArcadiaJ. Michael McGinnis, MD, MA, MPP from the National Academy of Medicine, and Diana Zuskov from LexisNexis Risk Solutions for a discussion on how to engage underserved communities in COVID-19 vaccine distribution and using data-driven approaches to close gaps in health equity.

"I think the biggest takeaway is that there is a lot of data out there and I think we're getting to the point where everyone is convinced data is important, but making it actionable and connecting it down to one individual that you can look at an entire data story for."

- Diana Zuskov

Panel #3: Virtual Care Delivery During COVID-19 and Beyond

eHI CEO Jen Covich Bordenick joined experts Saurabha Bhatnagar, MD of United Healthcare, Adam Pellegrini of CVS Health, and Roy Schoenberg, MD of Amwell. Panelists discussed how their organizations have scaled virtual care delivery during COVID-19 and how they envision the future of health care post-COVID-19.

"For the next generation of telehealth that we want to be known for it has to be built differently to allow for innovation of others to collaborate inside the telehealth encounters or surrounding the telehealth encounters."

- Dr. Roy Schoenberg 

Panel #4: Protecting “Health-ish” Data: Balancing Innovation and Health Data Privacy

eHI's Vice President and Senior Counsel Alice Leiter joined Jodi Daniel, Partner at Crowell & Moring; Laura Hoffman, Assistant Direction of Federal Affairs at the AMA; and Liz Salmi, Senior Strategist, Research Communication at OpenNotes and Senior Multimedia Communications Director at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Panelists talked about the challenging balance of shoring up legal protections for the increasing amounts of non-HIPAA-covered health data, establishing consumer trust in new technologies, and encouraging innovation in health care and health tech.

"[With respect to the digital Covid contact tracing apps]... There was a great idea, a great need to try to supplement traditional contact tracing for public health purposes with the outbreak of Covid with digital apps and smartphone apps that could use different types of functionality on your phone ...to alert folks when they were exposed to Covid. Unfortunately, we saw with a lot of the early rollouts of those apps that people didn't trust what would happen to the information they provided."

- Laura Hoffman

Upcoming Webinar: Release of the Final Consumer Privacy Framework for Health Data. We are delighted to release our final proposal to shore up protections for non-HIPAA-covered health information and share our plans for phase 2 of our work. Please join us and our colleagues from the Center for Democracy and Technology on February 9 at 2:00. 

Panel #5: Digital Health Policy: Have We Reached a Turning Point?

The last panel of the Annual Meeting was moderated by eHI’s Assistant Vice President of Policy, Catherine Pugh. Catherine was joined by Aashima Gupta, Director, Global Healthcare Strategy and Solutions at Google Cloud; Matthew Roman, Chief Digital Strategy Officer at Duke University Health System; and Dr. Mona Siddiqui, Senior Vice President, Clinical Strategy & Quality at Humana for a discussion on the impact of COVID-19 on health policy, lessons learned, and how we move forward to build a more effective, efficient, and equitable health care system​. 

“I think digital should have a level playing field and I think there’s often been just a much higher bar to get some things approved than in-person care, so my hope is that people begin to see last year as a proof point of what’s possible and continue to enable greater access to care for people through technology and through digital solutions.”

- Dr. Mona Siddiqui

 

WEBINAR: New Strategies for Patient Engagement: Lessons Learned During the Pandemic

January 21, 2021

Are your patients and members so concerned about contracting COVID-19 that they are afraid to seek preventative care? Between deferred care, COVID-19 vaccine engagement, and the need to illuminate and address socioeconomic challenges and health equity, patient engagement presents new challenges as move into 2021. Do your current strategies measure up?

Please join us Lurie Children’s Pediatric Partners, an integrated network in Chicago, and Community Health Plan of Washington, a nonprofit health plan supporting Medicaid and Medicare populations, as they share their experiences and lessons learned from 2020, and discuss challenges ahead.

Both organizations knew early in the spring of 2020 that this year would make patient engagement difficult. They took this opportunity to rethink how they engaged with their populations by taking the lead in educating patients about the new public health threat, offering resources, and sharing guidance on preventative care.

The webinar will look at:

  • Tools to support patients as the pandemic continues
  • Engaging and educating patients around COVID-19 vaccinations
  • Closing preventative care gaps and addressing deferred care
  • Advancing health equity by addressing SDOH at the point of care
