Introducing this episode's
guest, Julie Johnston
"Physicians were a little leery of [telehealth] prior to the pandemic, but now they’ve all pretty much adopted it as part of their practice, and they anticipate that they’ll continue using it. But with that volume, where it’s becoming ubiquitous, how do you stand out? How do you elevate the patient experience and still offer that empathy and that warmth?" -Julie Johnston
"One of the big propositions of any kind of industry conference are those networking opportunities, so how do you accomplish that in a digital world? Similarly, how do you accomplish engaging a patient in those moments before the connection has been made with the clinician?" -Nate Treloar
