      Virtual Care in the COVID World and Beyond
      Desmond Watt, PA-C
      One Medical, Virtual Medical Director
      PAs in Virtual Medicine and Telemedicine (PAVMT), Co-founder and Immediate Past President

      As COVID-19 has progressed, telemedicine has taken center stage. The patient journey in healthcare has historically been one of a relatively linear series of encounters, separated by place and time. As we look to our future, telemedicine and telehealth enable the ability for care and the patient journey to function in 3D, where components such as place and time are no longer barriers to the provision of care. Further, the skillset and training of PAs and NPs positions us incredibly well to serve patients in this evolving healthcare space. Opportunity abounds, as does risk, for the professions at this time. We must seize this critical moment in our healthcare history and reckon with the power and potential for telemedicine and telehealth to truly shift the care paradigm toward one that potentiates flexibility and fluidity in the patient journey and moves us closer to the lofty goals of the healthcare quadruple aim.

      At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:

      • Explore trends in telehealth and telemedicine prior to and as a result of the COVID-19 healthcare response
      • Identify the value of telehealth and telemedicine as an essential component of an effective healthcare system and in addressing system-wide healthcare goals
      • Recognize current barriers and obstacles for PAs’ and NPs’ use of telemedicine and opportunities to overcome them

      Trends in Reimbursement
      Michael Powe

      Nearly every aspect of the healthcare reimbursement landscape is evolving. Emerging care models and a shift to value-based payment systems have begun to usher in a “new normal” for PAs, NPs, physicians, and other health professionals. Staying abreast of new reimbursement policies is essential to ensuring payment for services and avoiding concerns of fraud and abuse.

      At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:

      • Explain the latest changes in reimbursement regulations based on the 2021 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule
      • Describe the components of reimbursement policies that will impact health professionals as payment systems transition to value-based reimbursement
      • Identify strategies to improve the recognition and tracking of the contributions and productivity of PAs and NPs in various specialties and healthcare settings

      Advanced Practice Provider Transition to
      Practice and Onboarding: New Opportunities and
      Innovation Fueled by Best Practices
      Sarah Vanderlinden, MPAS, PA-C, DFAAPA
      Medical College of Wisconsin, Assistant Director of Advanced Practice

      A comprehensive PA/NP transition to practice program is the foundation for clinical and professional growth, building a highly-functional, multi-professional healthcare team, and delivery of quality, patient-focused care. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted all healthcare organizations and emphasized the importance and flexibility of the PA/NP workforce. As a result, PA/NP transition to practice has emerging challenges, demonstrating the value of foundational best practices and highlighting new opportunities both for onboarding and expanding the skillsets of practicing PAs/NPs. The lessons learned during this response challenge PA/NP leaders to create new strategies to impact and strengthen the future of PA/NP transition to practice.

      At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:

      • Identify foundational strategies for PA/NP transition to practice
      • Recognize emerging challenges and opportunities in transition to practice especially with the impact from the COVID-19 pandemic
