Seniors Embrace an Integrated Virtual Care Experience

Megan Gresham-Ulrich, vice president of marketing and business development, Maple Knoll Communities
Mark Plunkett, corporate director of information technology, Maple Knoll Communities

More than 70% of healthcare consumers prefer to receive virtual services for their conditions. And 72% prefer to track their health status virtually. Despite this consumer demand, however, just 2% of healthcare providers offered 80% or more of their services virtually as of 2019. The COVID-19 pandemic has transformed care delivery, resulting in mass-adoption of telehealth. How can organizations navigate this new virtual world? In this episode of Netsmart CareThreads, we spoke with Megan Gresham-Ulrich, vice president of marketing and business development and Mark Plunkett, corporate director of information technology at Maple Knoll Communities. Here's what Megan and Mark discussed:

  • Why Maple Knoll chose to be a technology-first organization
  • How technology is revolutionizing senior care
  • Ways technology will change the senior care delivery experience
  • Supporting technological innovation through grants

This discussion with Megan Gresham-Ulrich and Mark Plunkett was sampled from our show, Netsmart CareThreads.
