Telehealth - Where It Works and Where It Doesn't with ATA Chairman Joseph Kvedar, MD

February 26, 2021: Telehealth has become a household word. The numbers in 2020 were staggering. What trends should we expect in 2021? What is the new normal? Dr. Joseph Kvedar, Harvard Professor, Senior Advisor, Virtual Care at Mass General Brigham and Chair of the Board for the American Telemedicine Association discusses the technology around televisits, consults and remote patient monitoring. With the use of artificial intelligence and symptom checkers, a patient can start their telehealth journey working with software and then get triaged to the appropriate clinician. That’s pretty cool. Clinician adoption used to be a big barrier to telehealth. Have we gotten through it? Will the next generation of med school students get different training? What is the legislative agenda for the ATA coming into the Biden administration? And how can we tighten security and privacy?
