COVID-19 As a Digital Transformer:  Telehealth Accelerates & There’s No Looking Back

We’ve seen years of regulations around telehealth topple in order to respond to the market need of virtual health options due to COVID-19.

With over 42% of Americans using telehealth during the pandemic, the data speaks for itself —Definitive analysts uncovered a 6,000% increase in telehealth claims from the summer of 2019 to the summer of 2020.

Ready or not, telehealth is poised to play a critical role in healthcare for the foreseeable future.

All of this calls for more dialogue around telehealth. On September 24th, 2020, Definitive Healthcare will host an expert roundtable on telehealth and consider:  

    • What COVID-19 and post-COVID-19 virtual care look like

    • What the easing, and possible re-imposing, of telehealth restrictions means for patients and providers

    • What other ways digital expansion in healthcare can continue to evolve and what shifts need to happen to accommodate an increasingly virtual model

    • As regulations, claims coverage, and the patient journey rapidly evolve, how this will impact healthcare-focused sales and marketing

Join Afshan Ali, Division Vice President of Telehealth at Jackson & Coker, Dr. Elisha Yaghmai, President & CEO at FreeState Healthcare, and Dr. Davin Lundquist, Chief Medical Officer at Augmedix as we capture their expertise and predictions on the digital expansion of healthcare and what this means for your business and go-to-market strategy.
