Health systems across the country are finding that a well-developed telehealth platform can deliver much-needed healthcare to rural communities, where providers are scarce and access is limited. In many cases, that platform is a lifeline for communities and populations who need preventative or chronic care, access to specialists or even primary care services.
The Marshfield Clinic serves a vast part of Wisconsin, much of it urban. And the two-hospital, 50+-clinic health system has a strong track record or reaching out to those distant corners of the state through telehealth.
Join us on Wednesday, Nov. 8, as Christopher Meyer, the Marshfield Clinic’s director of virtual health, explains how the health system uses telehealth to reach patients near and far. He’ll discuss the various tools and services being offered, from video platforms to mHealth apps, and examine how these services help Marshfield boost outcomes, improve workflow and business line decisions for providers, and move the needle on patient engagement and collaboration.
