Innovation in Care Delivery : Facilitated Virtual Care Webinar

Facilitated Virtual Care is an innovative way to bring providers to patients in their homes, improve access to care and alleviate the need for patients to leave their homes to receive care from providers traditionally only available in the clinic setting.  The speaker addresses the quality outcomes, patient satisfaction, technology, assistive devices and physician reviews of Facilitated Virtual Care.  This talk is especially timely in the new normal created by coronavirus as residents are often reluctant to seek treatment for their chronic conditions in physician offices resulting in hospital stays that could be avoided.
