Evolving virtual care: moving from pandemic response to permanent care delivery model

17 Jun 2021
C - Breakout stage 5

As the COVID-19 pandemic began to unfold, the deployment of virtual care services gathered pace to preserve hospital capacity and reduce virus transmission.

Now, as the NHS reassesses healthcare service requirements, virtual care is poised to take on a permanent role. Evidence shows that not only is virtual care highly convenient and cost-effective, it also often works just as well as in-person care.

Current Health, a global remote care management platform, is joined by its partner, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, to present how virtual care at Imperial has evolved under the pressure of COVID-19 and how the organisation is building new pathways to make virtual care a permanent fixture in the post-pandemic world.

This session is supported by Current Health.
