Hi everyone. Thank you for joining our webinar today. Telehealth’s trajectory- Providers’ Perspectives on the Future. My name is Ali Chaitin and I’m a marketing campaigns manager at Definitive Healthcare. I am joined today by Dr. Srinivasan from Hicuity Health, Dr. Halford from Covenant Health, and Ashley Berube from Definitive Healthcare. I wanted to walk through some housekeeping items prior to starting the webinar. First, all lines are muted. However, if you do have a question, please do not hesitate to add it to the Q and A, and we’ll be sure to either answer it in the chat box, in the Q and A or answer it in the Q and A portion of the webinar. Additionally, we will have a recording available in the next couple of days. So please look out for an email with that link.
Lastly, I’ll walk through today’s agenda. First, I’ll have my amazing panelists introduce themselves. Then Ashley will set the stage and talk about the current trends and data in telehealth. And from there, Ashley, the providers will talk through the operational benefits of telehealth and then we’ll end with some Q and A. So we are so thrilled to have these three amazing speakers who are helping to shape the trajectory of telehealth. I’m going have each of them introduce themselves, starting with Dr. Mandy Halford from covenant health.

Covenant Health is a not for profit healthcare delivery system located in east Tennessee. We have 10 acute care hospitals and over approximately a hundred physician practices over a 23 county service area. In my role, I focus on the provider workflows for electronic health record and focus on consumerism initiatives, including telehealth, and our latest initiative was a tele ICU rollout in partnership with Hicuity Health.

S. Ram Srinivasan (02:18):
Thanks, Mandy. My name is Dr. Srinivasan and I serve as a chief medical officer for Hicuity Health. We are the nation’s largest provider of tech enabled clinical services, and it’s a range of offerings that we have from technology to clinical services force, remote monitoring, and we cover a range of spaces as well from hospital, acute care, intensive care, as well as post-acute and remote monitoring and telemetry services. We serve over a hundred hospitals in nearly 30 states all through this remote care platform provision. And we’ve been in the business just about 15 years now. So we’ve learned a lot along the way and continue to evolve. And in addition, try to keep connected to the clinical side of things by providing the care in the telehealth world and at the bedside as well. I’ll send it off to Ashley here.
Ashley Berube (03:23):
Thank you so much, Dr. Srinivasan and everyone. My name is Ashley Berube and I am a senior data analyst manager on the professional services team at Definitive Healthcare. Over the course of my career, I’ve worked to understand and translate healthcare data into a, both digestible and hopefully actionable format. At definitive healthcare. We specifically look to transform data analytics and expertise into healthcare commercial intelligence. Today, we’re going to use some of that healthcare commercial intelligence to guide our conversations around telehealth and its trajectory. We’ll dive into some real time intelligence from Definitive’s all payer data, as well as dive into some facility insights to understand telehealth’s role in the continuum of care… .
