Virtual-First Primary Care Pilot and Scale
Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health
Access is a major problem in the traditional primary care model, where patients may wait up to several months to see their PCPs. A virtual-first model can provide improved access through telemed/hybrid visits, but the service needs to be designed to consider provider well-being, operational constraints and business ROI.
Additionally, once a pilot was launched, the next challenge was to use the learnings to scale the program system-wide while aligning various project teams -- including IT, operations, business strategy and marketing.
