Posted Nov 15, 2021 from healthcareitnews.com
Seven health system IT executives explain how they're strategizing to build on the post-pandemic potential of virtual care technologies and services.
When it comes to the COVID-19 pandemic and health IT, if there's just one thing that everyone can agree on, it's that telehealth has gone mainstream. Thanks to new regulations from the government and subsequent new rules from commercial payers, telemedicine services are being reimbursed.
These factors shot telehealth and related technologies and services like connected health and remote patient monitoring through the stratosphere. Consequently, investing in these areas today versus two years ago requires very different considerations.
Welcome to the third installment in Healthcare IT News' latest feature series, "Health IT Investment: The Next Five Years." This third feature focuses on telehealth, connected health and remote patient monitoring.
