Gartner® Report: Virtual Care Requires a New Look at Its Enabling Architecture
At the beginning of the pandemic, healthcare organizations rushed to get virtual care in place—often in a matter of weeks. Several waves later, virtual care is becoming an integral part of the care continuum.
This shift requires new thinking about virtual care architecture for resilient, adaptive systems.
According to Gartner, “The purpose of a virtual care architecture is to create a technical and clinical environment that enables the smooth and easy delivery of HDO-based care services to any patient or consumer, no matter where they are located.”*
The Corolar Virtual Care platform supports this by:
- connecting services with any EHR/EMR for seamless care coordination
- enabling collaboration among ED, primary care and community health partners
- providing customizable care pathways for a patient-centred experience
