Laying Telehealth Strategy Groundwork• Telehealth adoption rates rising on many fronts

• 69% of physicians said they would be willing to use Telehealth1

• 77% of consumers willing to try a virtual visit2

• 80% of patients report they’d switch providers for ‘convenience factors’ alone3

• Top 5 consumer concerns with Telehealth: - Quality of care- Capability to diagnose/treat virtually- Security of health information- Lack of personal connection w/provider- Cost

• Telehealth strategy maps are in abundance – key is adapting

Defining & Aligning (Example)

TELEHEALTH STRATEGY: IMPROVED ACCESS & CARE CONTINUITY

Organizational goals supporting strategy:

Business Model Innovation: Establish new services and/or revenue channels; convenient care access. - E.g. On demand virtual visits for employees, new patients.

Population Health Management: Trigger early intervention and decrease suboptimal utilization. - E.g. Scheduled virtual visits & RPM.

Channel Access: Create new and manage existing entry points to acquire and retain patients.- E.g. Minimize outmigration; attract new patients; extend primary care service area (E.g. On demand/scheduled virtual visits for millennials and at risk existing patients.

Care Continuity: Facilitate streamlined throughput and transitional care. Activate patients for effective self-management. - E.g. Scheduled virtual visits, RPM.

Post Acute Care PilotPilot Length: 3 monthsVendor/Partner: Providence Express Care Virtual / American WellPatient Population: High risk inpatients requiring care coordinationProviders: Hoag LCSW Care Navigators

Objective:• Evaluate impact to patient engagement of video vs. phone follow-up care

Key Learnings:• Population too ill & did not want to be seen (e.g. hospice)• Patients saw no added value in face to face for ‘care coordination / social support’• Patients not tech savvy (preferred text / audio)• Language barrier (required interpreter line integration)• Implement tracking PRIOR to launch for patient response and reason if not interested in using

Gestational Diabetes Pilot Pilot Length: 12 monthsVendor/Partner: Providence Express Care Virtual / American Well Patient Population: Gestational Diabetes outpatientsProviders: Diabetes RN, RD and LCSW

Objectives:• Pilot scheduled video visits with 30 Sweet Success patients• Improve GDM-related knowledge and self-management for optimal pregnancy outcomes• Document a randomized controlled trial for scientific validity and Center visibility externally

Key Learnings:• Patient education re: Telehealth protocols critical (E.g. multi-tasking, public places)• Providers must be enthusiastic & resilient; overcome technology failures• Payers positioned as competitors; reimbursement dependent upon negotiated contracts• Don’t underestimate resources needed to schedule/reschedule/’virtually room patient’/etc.• Disparate glucometer compatibility w/EHRs requires manual processes and time

Urgent Care Pilot (Direct to Consumer) Pilot Length: 9 monthsVendor/Partner: Providence Express Care Virtual / American WellPatient Population: Existing & new patients seeking urgent careProviders: Providence Express Care Virtual NP’s

Objectives:• Offer convenient access to Hoag Urgent Care services for existing patients (prevent outmigration)• Capture new patients and increase managed care lives in HMG through referrals• Pilot virtual visits cost efficiently to enable key learnings about Orange County consumers

Key Learnings:• Growth strategies are long term investments - start w/employees• Marketing and end to end white labeling significantly impact outcomes• Clearly define referral and follow-up care processes, close care continuum loop• Employees on high deductible plan cannot pay a reduced visit rate due to tax issues • Large Telehealth vendor platforms less flexible and unlikely to customize

Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM)

LifeWIngs Executive Steering Committee

Pilot Length: 12 monthsVendor/Partner: Care InnovationsPatient Population: COPD / Diabetes inpatients & HMG outpatients

Providers: Diabetes & COPD Care NavigatorsObjectives:• Reduce high risk patient admissions and readmissions• Recruit/convert new MA HMG patients• Increase patient understanding and self-management of their chronic disease

Key Learnings:• Select vendor ‘partner’; negotiate shared risk outcomes, 12 mos & EHR integration• Physician buy in and referral is critical to patient engagement/participation• Requires ‘dedicated’ administrative (sales) & clinical resources; complex workflows• Inpatient populations not as interested in RPM• Overall patient satisfaction w/RPM is high

Top 10 Pitfalls and Recommendations

LifeWIngs Executive Steering Committee

1. Patients want choice. Meet patients where they want to be met.

2. Resist implementing new technology ‘just because’ – validate need.

3. Matrix manage & pilot to minimize cost - test, iterate, measure.

4. Get comfortable with ambiguity - best practices, policies, precedence, validation.

5. Do your research! Partners, vendors, competitors, research orgs, blogs, lobbyists. Learn from others.

6. You’re the expert! Competition, reimbursement, technology, contracting, operations, etc.

7. Engage, educate and communicate successes often (providers & leadership). Be your own advocate!

8. Develop solid performance indicators, goals, metrics, RFP templates. Revisit & communicate often.

9. Do not expect a traditionally quantifiable ROI.• Ex: When applied to financial risk pools, value add equates to reduced visits at “bricks and mortar” sites,

increased patient panels, and decreased numbers of high-cost events.

10. Encourage a culture that embraces change.
