    Telemedicine will soon just be medicine. While this is a bold statement, the data of what patients want in terms of virtual care from their providers is compelling. The future of telemedicine is now so practices need to be prepared to compete in a new market for physician medical care. This presentation reviews the recent patient demand data, anticipated reimbursement changes, and the rising market competition. Most importantly, participants will learn how embrace patient engagement by beginning their telemedicine journey to protect their practice from growing competitive forces.

    1. Develop an understanding of what patients want in terms of virtual care and the growing competition for patients
    2. Understand the scope and options for telemedicine virtual care added to existing practices
    3. Learn how to prepare their practice for telemedicine and the best way to get started without disruption
