Hybrid Patient Care Models: How Medical Practices Thrive After COVID-19

Trevor Brown, Vice President of Business Development at Relatient, presents this informative webinar today. The COVID-19 pandemic complicated healthcare delivery as healthcare organizations limited procedures and in-office visits to essential care only and quickly spun up Telehealth services to treat patients remotely, protecting both patients and staff. Now, as medical practices, hospitals, and health systems have welcomed their patients back, they face new challenges, including increased gaps in care, staying prepared for future disruptions big and small, and meeting new patient expectations that shifted during the pandemic's crisis points. Hybrid care models are helping medical providers meet the need by combining in-office and Telehealth visits with digital workflows that streamline the patient journey, get patients engaged in their care again, and maintain best practices learned during COVID-19. In this presentation, we'll take a look at hybrid care models in action, strategies for powering them effectively, and steps for getting started or refining what's already in place.

Rose – Attorney at Law, P.L.L.C., Houston, TX presents. “As part of the Department’s effort to fully protect patients’ health information and their rights under HIPAA, OCR has issued this important new fact sheet clearly explaining a business associate’s liability,” said OCR Director Roger Severino. In 2013, under the authority granted by the HITECH Act, OCR issued the Final Omnibus Rule that, among other things, identified provisions of the HIPAA Rules that apply directly to business associates and for which business associates are directly liable. One of the most notable items is the Business Associate Agreement.
