In June of 2021 Google reported a 300% increase in global searches for virtual care. This should come as no surprise because according to a recent survey, 92% of consumers are now committed to incorporating virtual care into their normal interactions with their physicians. But how prepared are employers and health insurance companies to meet this surge in demand for virtual care from their employees and members?

During this webinar, Kelly Bliss, President of U.S. Group Health, Teladoc Health and Matt Eyles, President and CEO, AHIP will discuss their perspectives on how health plans and employers can prepare to meet the surge in consumer demand for virtual care by:

  1. Decreasing out of pocket costs using virtual services
  2. Enhancing marketing communication and engagement
  3. Improving member experience by adding a virtual first health plan offering

Join us for this webinar and you’ll:

  • Learn about findings from a recent Virtual Care Transformation Survey
  • Understand the state of the employer market and where gaps exist to meet future goals
  • Hear about how the peer-reviewed Whole-Person Virtual Care Transformation Model drives healthcare value with a transformative approach to virtual care
  • Discover 5 areas where employers intend to deliver incremental value – including health equity – and actionable steps to get there
