Digital enablement has become a table stakes essential for both providers and health plans as more consumers expect a tech-enabled experience, with the ability to access specialty support — virtually and on demand — and out-of-the-box tools for managing care. Meanwhile, leading organizations are exploring the use of chatbots and other digital tools to boost efficiency in scheduling appointments, paying bills, receiving lab results, and understanding care plans. The move toward digital care forces leaders to consider whether they are overleveraging physical facility assets and what they should do to right-size in-person care to match current demand. It also is important to identify opportunities to lessen the risk of clinician burnout by pairing caregivers with the data they need to deliver the right care at the right time
