The Real Challenges of Telehealth Adoption

10:30am - 11:30am Tuesday, February 12
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W307A

Description

Telehealth continues to evolve rapidly worldwide. The technology available facilitates monitoring and examination of patients with an amazing level of quality, efficiency and accuracy. Patient interest and satisfaction is high, and many large healthcare systems and payers have invested millions into their evolution into the telehealth space. Despite these advances, telehealth continues to face significant barriers. Many large professional societies have publicly expressed concerns over the widespread adoption of telehealth, many payers still restrict payment for services, and a large segment of the provider population remains skeptical or even opposed to the growth of telehealth. The speakers will draw from their extensive experience in telehealth across the clinical, academic, administrative, financial, technical and payer worlds to provide key insights and actionable solutions on enhancing reimbursement, provider adoption, and stakeholder buy-in.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Define the key barriers that limit the broad adoption of telehealth

  • Adapt your approach to telehealth development and dissemination to address barriers to provider adoption and utilization of telehealth services
