In this episode, we explore the dramatic changes taking place in the healthcare industry, specifically focusing on telehealth and virtual care services. Healthcare providers are now conducting 50 to 175 times the number of telehealth visits than they did prior to the pandemic according to a report by the McKinsey Global Institute. How are providers keeping up with this growth while providing the same quality of care patients need?
Dain McCracken, Director of Healthcare at Samsung, joins us to discuss the way healthcare organizations are leveraging technology to manage the rapid rise in demand for home health and virtual care. Dain dives into the most common virtual care use cases and how technology is being used to support them at scale. Specifically, we talk about Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM), a use case with soaring demand due in part to changes in Medicare funding. Dain explains the RPM technology that’s being used to help manage chronic illnesses and the orchestration of devices needed to keep monitoring kits working for the patients and the providers.
