In an instant, health insurance providers and healthcare providers were required to rethink the way they delivered care to members and patients. The rapid expansion of telehealth and remote patient monitoring have offered immediate options to maintain some continuity of care in uncertain times. However, the acceptance of these care delivery models has accelerated the future of digital care as a standard of care — and the most successful insurers will be the ones that begin implementing comprehensive digital care strategies now. That means that health insurance providers must evaluate true digital care companies as more than vendors or point solutions; they must integrate this work into their care strategy in ways that will deliver a better patient experience, and ultimately better health outcomes (and savings) for members.
The webinar will demonstrate Omada’s long-held vision for the future of digital care. The company began as a prevention point solution, but has evolved to a wide-ranging provider of digital care services including chronic disease prevention and management, mental health support, and musculoskeletal care, including physical therapy, delivery. By methodically expanding the breadth of the company’s offerings while maintaining a depth of clinical rigor, and a deep commitment to human connection at the center of care, Omada is charting a course for the future of digital care.
