3:40 PM CASE STUDY: Measuring ROI of Telemedicine to Improve Health Outcomes and Connectivity in Remote and Rural Areas
There is no doubt that telemedicine increases access to healthcare and that this access, in turn, improves outcomes and reduces costs. However, creating a telemedicine program requires time, analysis and resources. In this session, Jane will explore how organisations can ensure long-term ROI:
- Appreciating the impact of telemedicine on improving health outcomes and reducing costs
- Establishing metrics for ROI of telemedicine such as utilisation rate, patient satisfaction, prescription rate and clinician response time; and benchmarking against them for best practice
- When strategically planned, telemedicine can be seen as a service differentiator, giving consumers the flexibility to seek services when and where they want or need it
