On Thursday, May 7 at 6 p.m. (PST) the Doctors Technology Office (DTO) is hosting “Getting Patients Back to Practice – Navigating the New Norm,” a physician-led webinar highlighting strategies for effectively communicating with patients to ensure that they are aware that virtual care is available, and are accessing appropriate and timely care. 

Physician panelists will share best practices, lessons learned, and other tips including prioritizing at-risk patients, returning to full practice capacity, educating patients about appointment availability, and sharing quick start toolkit resources and email templates.
