Digital Solutions to Virtual Care

The healthcare landscape is rapidly changing, forcing health systems to rethink traditional models.  Rising cost pressures, a focus on population health, and pay for performance mandates are driving health systems to look for ways to manage patients outside of the hospital and clinic setting.  Meanwhile, the rise and adoption of digital health is making a whole new set of solutions possible.  With the healthcare market becoming more and more competitive, and consumers subject to increasing choice, health systems need to develop new and innovative virtual care solutions that increase access, efficiency, and quality of care, all while delivering superior customer experience.

HFHS and HAP employees – individuals or teams of up to four people – are invited to submit concepts for virtual care solutions that improve access, improve efficiency, and increase quality of care while managing patients in an innovative and transformational way.
