Telehealth Affinity Group

Professional Care, Virtually Delivered

COVID-19 pushed Telehealth to the forefront as we distanced ourselves and sheltered in place to reduce the burden on acute care and ambulatory facilities. Telehealth executives have become major change agents in pivoting to a virtual care platform. Such rapid change requires executives with a complex understanding of IT, digital health, remote monitoring, patient and consumer engagement and care access across diverse landscapes. The SI Telehealth Affinity Group offers leaders a forum to collaborate and share innovative solutions that enhance the practice of medicine and ensure access to care. Plus, if you want to know what your peers are doing and thinking right now, join SI’s Telehealth Affinity Group MS Teams Site to facilitate ongoing, ad hoc, open discussion and collaboration among the Telehealth peer group.


Dialogues – Invitation-only

These 1-hour, peer-led Zoom meetings are by invitation-only, with recaps distributed to affinity group members via MS Teams. To guest-lead/host a Dialogue on a topic of interest, contact Cynthia Schroers. Some hosts share background materials to support discussion; just ask for samples.

About Affinity Groups

SI Affinity Groups are intimate forums focused on a common issue, topic or collective challenge of its members, with a goal of information sharing around similar concerns, best practices, lessons learned, industry trends and resources to help organizations thrive.

What People Are Saying
As a healthcare system, we have many challenges that we are working on to improve frontline workflow. I was amazed how many of our organizations are working on improving very similar processes. It is great to see how we can reach out and connect with each other to collaborate and make healthcare become more resilient together.
