Allison Snow (00:00):
Hi there. I’m Allison Snow from Definitive Healthcare. Welcome to COVID-19 As a Digital Transformer: Telehealth Accelerates and There’s No Looking Back.
So just a few administrative items I’d love to get out of the way. Please know the following. This webinar is being recorded, and it will be sent to all registrants and attendees over the next few days. There is a Q & A box on your console. Feel free to submit a question at any time, and we’ll get to as many as time permits. The windows on your console are fully customizable. If you’d like to enlarge or minimize or dismiss any screen, feel free to do so. Before you depart, we’d appreciate if you could fill out the survey that’s also on your console. We look at these results very carefully. We’ve made some significant changes based on your feedback so please do that. Thank you so very much for that.
One other item I would love to say before we begin, is that we’ll talk about COVID-19 in a number of ways today. Particularly as a digital disruptor, and a major element of how care is delivered, and how it might be in the future, and some of the commercial considerations around that. We should talk about that. It’s really important for everyone on the call. Really important for all of you who joined us today. But on behalf of myself and our guests and all of us at Definitive Healthcare, we also understand and acknowledge that COVID-19 is an international health crisis and pandemic. So, it’s bigger than the disruption it’s caused to our business, and we certainly get that, and really want to convey our empathy for the many ways in which COVID has impacted your lives during this period.
So, having acknowledged that, thank you so very much for joining. I’m thrilled to be joined by some telehealth experts today to dig into this topic. You’ll find that they’ve got various perspectives and backgrounds. I’d love to ask them to introduce themselves. I think they’ll do a better job than I might. So I’ll start with Afshan. Would you tell everyone a little bit about yourself?
Afshan Ali (02:06):
Sure, my name is Afshan Ali, and I am the Division Vice President of Telehealth for Jackson and Coker. Which is a part of the Jackson Healthcare family of companies. I’m responsible for overseeing the strategy, and operations, and execution of the telehealth line of service of our business. Outside of that, I work with all our specialty divisions within our organization. Thank you for having me.
Allison Snow (02:36):
Excellent. Thank you so much for being here. How about Dr. Lundquist? Would you go next?
Dr. Davin Lundquist (02:44):
Hi, I’m Davin Lundquist. I’m the Chief Medical Officer for Augmedix, a company that delivers remote medical documentation support and live clinical support. We do that using either Google Glass, or a smartphone, to connect remote scribes with physicians and providers, to assist with their documentation. I’m also a practicing family physician in the Ventura, California market. In the medical foundation, which is part of Dignity Health. In this market, I’m also serving as a Chief Medical Information Officer. And some of my responsibilities there include helping all of our doctors and clinics get up and running on telemedicine, supporting that, and all of our other technology needs including optimization of EHR, exploring new digital solutions that empower patients and providers to have a better experience. Also very happy to be here. Thank you… .
