Children’s hospitals rapidly scaled telehealth programs to respond to early phases of the COVID-19 pandemic, affecting staff, patients and families through system-wide transformation and access to sub-specialty and primary care. Telehealth is expected to be a more significant and long-lasting strategy in care delivery after the pandemic and children’s hospitals have an opportunity to share key learning for the future.
Areas of focus for this webinar series included the application of telehealth to support system-wide change, experience in pediatric specialty virtual care delivery, optimizing the provider experience, and the future of telehealth at children’s hospitals.
- Understand the challenges children’s hospitals face in implementing telehealth to deliver care.
- Describe strategic and operational approaches that have been successful in meeting these challenges, and some areas where telehealth has not been shown to be as effective.
