Session Speaker: Don Beyer, Director of Technology- CareTech Solutions
The current COVID-19 pandemic created a rapid and massive shift to a remote workforce and its reliance on telecommunication, teleconferencing, and collaborative technologies to maintain, and in many cases, increase productivity. Hospitals and Health Systems have speedily setup or expanded their telehealth service offerings. Growing acceptance by patient community and fundamental changes in regulatory and reimbursement models have occurred that encourage the growth and spread of telehealth not just during the current crisis, but for years to come.
