Telehealth & Remote Care in a Post-Pandemic World
Telehealth utilization grew by 78 fold during the pandemic as the need for safe means to access and deliver healthcare was greater than ever. This rapid expansion of telehealth was enabled by regulatory changes, some temporary and some permanent, which expanded reimbursement for telehealth-delivered care. Given that patient and provider willingness to use telehealth and the skills to do so have increased, a roadmap is now needed for virtual care models that serve the goals of improving access to care, outcomes, and affordability.
This conference will feature keynote speakers and panelists who are studying and innovating virtual care models in medicine, mental health, physical therapy, pediatrics, underserved populations, and beyond. Topics including health equity, asynchronous interventions and care, and telehealth and the patient experience will be discussed and debated.
Keynote speakers include:
Todd Norwood, DPT, Director of Clinical Services at Omada Health where he built the first nationwide network of exclusively telehealth physical therapists;
Dr. Kristin Ray, Associate Professor of pediatrics at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine who researches pediatric health system access, outcomes, and equity, with a focus on the use and impact of telehealth in pediatric care;
Dr. Courtney Lyles, Associate Professor in the UCSF Division of General Internal Medicine at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, who researches health inequities and telehealth; and
Dr. Jared Skillings, the American Psychological Association’s (APA) Chief of Professional Practice, who is leading the APA’s efforts to promote the practice of psychology and advocates for practicing psychologists through federal and state legislative advocacy and regulatory initiatives, including telehealth reimbursement for psychological services.
The conference will feature two panel discussions as well, the first featuring a discussion around asynchronous interventions and the second featuring a discussion on telehealth and the patient experience.
