Welcome to the Ingenium Symposium

Accelerating Digital Health Adoption

The challenge with digital health these days is not the lack of innovation: It is the slow rate at which healthcare organizations are adopting the innovative solutions that are available.

In 2020 the venture capital community invested $9.4B into digital health innovation. Compare that to almost $50B of investments over 10 years from 2010 through 2019. What this means is that viable digital health solutions will be available soon and if healthcare providers are not adopting those, others will.

In this pragmatic presentation Christian Milaster will make the case for why healthcare organization need to up their game in adoption digital health innovation for quickly; and how healthcare leaders can change the culture of the organization to make decisions in hours, validate decisions in days and implement new solutions in weeks.

Economic Impact of Maintaining Rural Health

With the continued widespread adoption of telehealth solutions, rural communities are recognizing the benefits of this technology beyond the clinic or hospital setting. The ability to bring healthcare specialty services to remote locations improves the economic opportunities for all employers and citizens. Attracting and retaining employees is paramount if these communities are to remain viable. Making it possible for young families, children, teens, and older workers to receive care without having to leave town is a value that is measured beyond dollars and time spent traveling.
In this session, attendees will better understand the broader impact of how this technology:
  • Can improve employers’ ability to attract and retain employees
  • Can attract new businesses to the community
  • Provide training and continuing education programs for current and prospective clinical workers
  • Will help local clinics retain patient revenues while avoiding costs associated with hiring specialists for limited services
  • Will reduce unnecessary and costly patient transfers and by-passes
  • Provide peace of mind for residents who rely on the hospital for care and economic stability (maintaining clinical jobs locally)

Clinical Telemedicine: Practical Techniques

A telemedicine encounter is not at all the equivalent of a face-to-face medical encounter, yet delivery systems treat telemedicine visits as a diminutive version of its more familiar cousin.

The result; underperformance and greater liability—the latter masked by the COVID-induced slowing of the legal system.

As someone who was formally trained in the delivery of telemedicine beginning in 1991 (yes, 1991) and has worked it all his professional life, experience teaches that the simple application of influence and persuasion tactics can transform a telemedicine encounter into a value-generating machine.

The Touch-less Healthcare Consumer

The pandemic was a giant nationwide pilot program for telehealth and crash course in telehealth implementation. Now, ten months later, is the time to assess, revise, and build processes that support virtual care.

Healthcare was forced into virtual care. It was coming slowly, but the pandemic made it an instant must-have. Finding out how to best meet your customer and patient needs is challenging in an environment that changes daily. The public health emergency changed every simple task in order to prevent spread of COVID-19. Touch-less and contactless became a key word in describing transactions and interactions to stay virus free. The fear of catching the virus is still responsible for patients not getting preventive care. The result is a consumer who expects touch-less and safe healthcare.

What has been the consumers’ experience with telehealth? Multiple factors including accessibility, ease of use, technical capability, cost, and convenience that go into deciding if virtual care is a clear go-to option for patients.

Occupational Medicine: The “Diamond in the Rough” of Primary Care Medicine

In order to understand the value of Virtual Care in Occupational Medicine and Worker’s Compensation you first need to understand the system. Few medical practitioners have formal training in Occupational Medicine and most are inadequately prepared to render optimal Worker’s Comp. Equally unprepared are many HR, insurance reps and hospital system managers which is the cause of much frustration and unnecessary expense.

This lecture will provide a brief introduction to the poorly understood world of Occ/Med and Work Comp for those who have to work in this area. It will serve as a base for the subsequent lecture covering this newly emerging field of Virtual Care and Occ Med. You need to know the basics before you can fully appreciate the value that it can bring to your system.

Excellence: The Telehealth Accelerator

While many organizations quickly shifted to telehealth to cope with the crisis, some organizations were poised to excel.

CEO Dick Courcelle will highlight how Community Care Network was well-positioned for success with a clear strategic direction, a driven and aligned leadership team at all levels, and a fact-based organizational culture focused on continually raising the bar in service to patients and clients. Rather than reacting, CCN accelerated the strategic implementation of new modes of service delivery across dozens of service lines.

Organizational excellence is a strategic differentiator, with strategic and operational results as the tangible outcomes.

TeleDentistry — Exactly how do you do that?

No, we do not come through your computer or phone to drill or fill. We do however help patients with toothaches, broken teeth, bleeding gums, parents with teething children and seniors with problem dentures. We remediate, e-prescribe and schedule patients with next day on site dental visits if necessary.

This presentation will focus on the ability to provide quality dental care via a national network of dentists and hygienists. Howard Reis, CEO of TeleDentists, will discuss how the Covid-19 pandemic accelerated our business with agreements with companies such as Cigna, Anthem and Cerner. He will share demographic data and patient satisfaction scores gathered through thousands of consultations.

Most exciting is where we go in the near future. This will include medical-dental integration, expansion into e-commerce, incorporation of remote patient monitoring and eventually artificial intelligence. Major new partnership opportunities are also on the near horizon.
