Healthcare continues to digitize both the patient and the caregiver experience. Telehealth, virtual visits, and remote patient monitoring are quickly becoming new standards in a variety of care areas.  Nurses have discovered many innovative ways to leverage this technology to promote compassionate and safe care in real-time. As this technology becomes commonplace there are several considerations for deployment including: implementing the right solutions for each nursing environment, proper evaluation of when to deploy virtual vs.  traditional care models , and selecting the right patient populations for the optimal digital experience.  

Join us for discussion as Cleveland Clinic nurses from several care environments share their stories of working with technology solutions across distances to provide empathetic and quality care to our patients.

Participants in this session will understand different use cases for telehealth, virtual visits and remote monitoring and the nurses role and common challenges in championing these types of technology solutions.
