2022 Stronger - PH311 - Telemedicine’s Impact on Rural Hospitals and Vulnerable Patient Populations - On Demand

Join us for a panel discussion and learn how two health care organizations established innovative approaches to deliver telemedicine in their communities to address health disparities and inequities.

Intermountain Health, which started its tele-hospitalist program to address needs in its rural communities, will describe its growth from a nocturnist program at two hospitals to one that now delivers more than 1,700 unique patient interactions annually across three states.

University of Rochester will explain how its most vulnerable patients benefited from telemedicine during the COVID-19 pandemic, with 17.9% of the University of Rochester Medical Center Medicaid patient population accounting for 25.2% of patients who used telemedicine most extensively. These and other findings provide evidence as to the importance of telemedicine in delivering equitable care.

Learning Objectives

Describe successful strategies to establish telemedicine as an option for vulnerable populations in rural settings.
