Top of Mind Online virtual learning series


Watch 3-part program on-demand and learn why patient access is a top priority for health system leaders

Top of Mind Online is a three-part virtual learning series focused on the topic of patient access, a key priority for health systems’ technology investments. See the full agenda and link to watch below.

Hosted by the Center for Connected Medicine (CCM), Top of Mind Online explores patient access through in-depth virtual discussions among experts on infrastructure, innovation and investment in care delivery, and data and engagement.

The CCM defines patient access as the technologies — such as virtual care, remote patient monitoring, internet of things and devices, patient portals, apps, communication tools — that can help to reduce barriers for patients to access health care in a variety of settings, including a traditional health care facility, at home, online, and in-between scheduled encounters.

Patient access was cited by health system leaders as the top challenges that could be addressed by technology, according to the CCM’s “Top of Mind for Top Health Systems 2022” research.

With a single registration, you gain access to on-demand replays of all three sessions of the Top of Mind Online program.
