about

The COVID-19 public health emergency created severe strain on the health care system. Because of delayed care and reduced in-person visit volume, many patients have faced worse outcomes for treatable and preventable health conditions. Many primary care physicians have expressed concerns about undiagnosed conditions and lack of chronic condition management or behavioral health treatment. This presents an opportunity to reassess primary care delivery models that provide high value and increase access for patients.

This session will unpack a number of factors that have led to decreased access to care, specifically in primary care, behavioral healthcare, and chronic condition management. We’ll also examine how virtual primary care support can support a value-based care strategy that addresses the unique care delivery challenges presented by COVID-19.

Attendees will learn about:

  • Factors that drove decreased visit volume for primary care and the implications of foregone care
  • The connection between integrated primary care and improved clinical, behavioral, and cost outcomes, especially for chronic condition treatment
  • How an innovative health plan leaned into the market’s challenges to develop a virtual-first primary care plan
  • Principles to decrease costs for payers and patients while improving patient experience and outcomes
  • How virtual primary care practices are uniquely positioned to provide convenient care access while driving value-based care strategies
