Check back for more details as they are finalized

The learning series will focus on the topic of Patient Access, a key priority for health systems’ technology investments.

The CCM is defining 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.

This live, virtual series will explore this topic through keynote presentations and panel discussions organized around three sub-themes:

Infrastructure: “Bridging the Digital Divide”
Care Delivery: “Meeting Patients Where They Are”
Engagement: “Reaching the Hard to Reach”
