By now, most health care organizations have initiated or greatly expanded their telehealth capabilities to better serve patients who don’t require an in-person office visit, with the goal of limiting their exposure to the coronavirus.

The question is, now what? What is the roadmap for scaling and improving telehealth while the pandemic still rages? And once the pandemic subsides, where will telehealth fit in the larger scheme of things? Will payment parity continue? Both providers and patients have gotten used to video chats. Is there any reason to go backwards?

Join us as our panel of top industry thought leaders and innovators takes a close look at the practices and strategies currently in place for telehealth, and imagines the future role of telehealth within the overall delivery of health care services, when telehealth is an accepted mode of care delivery.

You’ll learn:

  • How to address the challenges and unintended consequences of the rapid expansion of telehealth services during the early Covid ramp up.
  • The near-term “next steps” in the delivery of services via telehealth as we continue to address the Covid emergency.
  • The potential future and impact of telehealth financial reimbursement levels and provider/consumer ongoing acceptance of telehealth after the Covid emergency
  • The possible future of telehealth as part of the provider service mix – capabilities, opportunities and likely challenges.
