Course Description

The HCCI House Call Practicum™ Telemedicine Elective is a full-day activity designed to familiarize you with the technology, staffing, and workflows used by Cleveland Clinic, one of our Practice Excellence Partner (PEP)™ sites, (programs recognized nationwide as premier providers of home-based primary care) to conduct virtual visits with their patients through synchronous, bi-directional video with the assistance of paramedics at the home.

You will first receive an overview of telemedicine and remote patient monitoring via the HCCI eLearning module, Telehealth in Home-Based Primary Care. Next, you will ride along with the paramedics to observe the use of the video technology at the patient’s bedside. Finally, you will spend time with the provider back at the office, observing several virtual visits, discussing the various factors involved in implementing a telemedicine program, including potential barriers, privacy legal issues, selection of appropriate technology, patient/caregiver satisfaction, and reimbursement considerations.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of the HCCI Telemedicine Elective, you will be able to:

  • Describe factors to consider prior to implementation of a telemedicine program.
  • RReview how technology is implemented to enable virtual visits in the home.
  • Explain the staffing of the telemedicine program.
  • Discuss how patients are scheduled for virtual visits.

You may wish to add the HCCI House Call Practicum™ two-day field experience to the Telemedicine Elective. This individualized learning experience allows providers and practice managers to shadow trained preceptors and acquire new knowledge and skills in house call operations and clinical care for medically complex patients in the home.
