Altarum’s Healthcare Value Hub

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed many aspects of healthcare, notably the rapid rise of telehealth demand and usage by patients, telehealth provision by providers, and temporary and permanent reimbursement changes. However, the quick switch to telehealth usage has brought up questions on how it will impact the larger healthcare system. Are telehealth appointments always appropriate, and if not, when should they be used? How do we incentivize high-value care in telehealth and reduce low-value care? How can we ensure equity in telehealth services?  

This is part two of a two-part webinar series. In the series, experts will discuss what we’ve learned from the recent telehealth boon and what we can expect at the state and federal levels, as well as a discussion on ensuring value in telehealth payment and equity in access. The two sessions will be broken down to focus on Equity and Value, respectively.
