Leading virtual first care companies, investors, payers, patients, and actuaries have come together for a pre-competitive consortium dedicated to supporting virtual first care (V1C) companies and their commitment to patient-centric care.
Hosted by the Digital Medicine Society (DiMe) and the American Telemedicine Association (ATA), IMPACT members are working to expand access to high quality, evidence-based virtual first care for patients, healthcare providers, and payers to improve clinical and health economic outcomes, enhance access, and provide a better overall patient experience.
IMPACT members identify priority opportunities and resources that are needed in V1C, resulting in resources for the community that are action oriented and fit-for-purpose. IMPACT’s first resource is table stakes for the field: the definition, characteristics and components of virtual first care.
Additional resources focused on the greatest opportunities to advance virtual first care are in flight. Members are building on existing work to develop models, templates and other resources to support establishing V1C as a critical approach to healthcare and supporting easier adoption and implementation of V1C solutions in the market.
