The adoption of telemedicine is rapidly expanding, with 52 percent of large employers planning to cover telemedicine this year. Critchley will examine the concerns that stakeholders must address before adoption and the measurable goals that need to be defined to achieve success.
“Adoption of telemedicine by employers, providers, payers and government services is the next evolutionary step in their drive to increase consumer engagement and improve overall wellness, while reducing healthcare costs,” said Critchley. “Developing a cohesive strategy for a successful program from initial design and implementation to adoption is crucial. I’m excited to share best practices, key competencies and organizational needs with attendees at WEDI.”
