Utilizing telehealth to advance rural health access: Wisconsin hospitals’ experiences

Title:  Lessons from the Data: What we can learn from COVID-19 Telehealth Data 

The rapid shift to delivery of almost all care to virtual platforms in response to COVID-19 has provided a unique opportunity to evaluate some of the long-held concerns and promises of telemedicine.  How much of a barrier is broadband? Does Telehealth increase utilization of healthcare?  Do patients like telehealth?  We will analyze the data in effort to answer these questions 

Speaker: Chris Meyer is the Director of Telehealth and Virtual Care for Marshfield Clinic Health System, an integrated health system located in Marshfield, WI serving 350,000 patients.  Chris joined MCHS in 2016 after spending most of his career in the IT sector.   Chris is a lifelong resident of Marshfield and served as Mayor of the City of Marshfield for 10 years.

Title:   Maintaining the Momentum 

Traditional face-to-face healthcare has been changed forever by the pandemic.  Patients and providers, in their demand for safe, timely, and accessible care, turned to Telehealth for solutions.  We will explore Gundersen Health System’s experience with telehealth before, during and after Covid-19.  We will review barriers, lessons learned, and strategies to maintain the energy surrounding telehealth.   

Speaker: Jessica Easterday, MBA, BSN, RN is the Program Manager for Telemedicine at Gundersen Health System in La Crosse, Wisconsin.  Jess joined the staff of the Department of Regional Services and Telemedicine after spending 24 years as a Registered Nurse providing primary care and telephone triage advice to thousands of patients.  The telemedicine program has grown to 40 specialties as well as an on-demand direct to consumer platform, serving patients in rural Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa.  Jess enjoys the challenges of change management and the promotion of health by providing options for patients and healthcare providers to connect.

Governing Board and Senior Leadership Responsibility, Accountability and Liability: The Compliance Hot Seat

Health care is one of the most regulated industries in the country.  Health care governing boards and senior leadership are charged with ensuring compliance with statutes, rules and regulations, some of which may pose serious penalties for non-compliance.  Board members who are not regularly involved in health care industry operations may not have a full appreciation for their personal liability. In this session, you will gain a better understanding of Board members’ and senior leaders’ responsibility for corporate compliance, from the structure and oversight of the compliance program – to addressing issues effectively to reflect the organization’s commitment to compliance.  This session will include the Office of Inspector General’s (OIG) guidance for boards and is intended to educate you on current best practices in compliance oversight.

Wisconsin Rural Community - Based Palliative Care Project Outcomes

Palliative care is supportive medical care for people with serious illnesses. Regardless of the diagnosis, palliative care focuses on providing patients with relief from the symptoms, pain, and stress of a serious illness. In 2018, under the guidance of Minnesota based Stratis Health, the Wisconsin Office of Rural Health and MetaStar, combined forces to meet the goal of expanding rural palliative care in Wisconsin.  After recruiting lead organizations and inviting community members to join the project, six coalitions were formed.  Each coalition developed their own aims and objectives specific to each county’s needs. In this session leaders from each of the Palliative Care Coalitions will share their experiences, outcomes, and challenges.
