Through the Virtual Looking Glass: Examining The COVID-Driven Rise of Telehealth With Claims

COVID-19 has served as the ultimate catalyst to telehealth and telemedicine; we’ve seen years of regulations around telehealth come undone to respond to the market need of virtual health options.

As a result, over 41 million telehealth claims have been filed between April and July 2020, a 4000% year over year increase or the same time period.

Using the most up-to-date claims data from July 2020, presenters Todd Bellemare and Casey Eastlack will explore:

    • What patterns in claims data reveal about the digital expansion of healthcare

    • What these observations mean for sales organizations for companies that serve providers

    • What does the current status of regulation mean for the continued growth in digital utilization

Join us for this 15-minute dialogue as our presenters help you map the rise in telehealth to strategies for providers and the firms that serve them.
