Today’s healthcare environment has resulted in an increased demand for patient care services and fewer physicians to meet that demand. Digital health applications provide an innovative solution to the problem. Various applications have been developed or are currently under development to enhance patient care and provide effective contemporary care delivery models. Certain applications may use artificial intelligence, virtual health functions or provide mobile health to the consumer for services such as providing glucose test results to the provider in real time, reducing readmission rates, and detecting suicidal behaviors. Improved outcomes, improved access, reduced costs, revenue growth and patient/clinician retention are just a few of the many benefits of the use of digital health applications in patient care. But it doesn’t come without unique risk exposures including privacy concerns, insurance coverage issues, the need to overhaul the existing operations, and consent issues. This webinar will utilize various examples to review the emerging risks stemming from the use of digital health applications. The discussion will include an overview of effective strategies to manage those risks.

  • Discuss the upside of risk associated with the use of digital health applications to complement patient care
  • Describe the insurance-related challenges and solutions to the use of digital health applications in patient care
  • Execute strategies to manage the risks associated with the use of digital health applications
