Industry experts share insights to modernize care delivery models for the virtual nursing market

BELMONT, Mich., June 19, 2024 — AvaSure, the market leader in acute virtual care, hosted Chief Nursing Executives at an event in Nashville, Tennessee, to share best practices for leveraging virtual care delivery models. These models aim to improve patient care and safety, enhance patient monitoring, increase clinical capacity, and reduce clinical cost. 

The CNE Advisory Board comprises 12 healthcare and nursing industry leaders who assist AvaSure in bringing continuous value to the acute-care market by providing informed insights on industry trends and emerging customer needs.

“We’re thrilled to host this distinguished group of nursing leaders who share their diverse insights and perspectives to support AvaSure’s continued expansion in the virtual nursing market,” said Adam McMullin, CEO, AvaSure. “Listening to the success stories and ROI our customers are realizing virtual care allows us to better understand and address additional use cases and further capabilities needed to advance adoption of virtual care across the healthcare ecosystem.”

A key topic of discussion was the inpatient virtual care maturity model, a tool designed to create meaningful alignment between health systems’ IT leadership while addressing clinical challenges resulting from more complex patient cases, resource shortages, and growing patient populations.
