In this webinar, speakers will discuss opportunities and challenges facing the adoption of telehealth, during and after the pandemic, from a policy and health provider perspective.
Telehealth has long been available as a supplement to in-person care, though usage was low due to regulatory restrictions and infrastructure barriers. However, due to the need for virtual care during the public health emergency, regulations were relaxed allowing telehealth to quickly emerge as a viable alternative to traditional care.
As we continue to navigate existing challenges to widespread adoption of telehealth, the pandemic provides us an opportunity to think innovatively about how to transform current telehealth policy to ensure everyone has access to the care they need.
