Vision to Virtual is HRS’ biggest annual event, bringing together top healthcare executives, physicians, nurses, advanced practice providers, ancillary providers, telehealth program leaders, clinical experts, payers, and technology champions from across the country for two days of deep-dive learning around all-things telehealth and remote patient monitoring.

This year, we’re hosting Vision to Virtual across two weeks—Day 1 is on Wednesday, November 3 and Day 2 is on Wednesday, November 10.

By participating in this event, attendees will hear from top thought leaders in the telehealth space and will participate in educational sessions and networking opportunities that will enable them to master telehealth, piece by piece.

Agenda

Day 1


Wednesday, November 3
10:00 AM – 3:35 PM EST

10:00 – 10:45 AM EST

Keynote: The Rise of Telehealth and Remote Patient Monitoring 

Across the past decade, advances in medical technology, changes in reimbursement structures, and the growing need for innovative care delivery models have initiated a shift in the healthcare industry. More recently, the COVID-19 pandemic has sparked new scrutiny of the healthcare system—from the availability of PPE for frontline workers to managing patients when hospitals are at capacity—ushering in a new era of virtual healthcare that is long overdue. This session will explain how consumer and physician demands for telehealth and RPM emerged, and how this will impact healthcare organizations going forward.

Expanding Beyond Home Health: The Hospital at Home Care Model

Despite decades of research and proven outcomes, the Hospital at Home model of care was not widely used in the US.

This session will review the key elements necessary to launching a Hospital at Home program, and check-in with HRS’ Hospital at Home partners to share their key learnings and next steps in program development.
