Expert Panel Discussion features executives from Nicklaus Children’s Health System, UPMC, and Mass General Brigham
Following on the heels of the “Top of Mind Exchange: Telehealth,” an invitation-only roundtable discussion with telehealth leaders, the Center for Connected Medicine (CCM) hosts a virtual panel discussion on telehealth’s potential to transform health care, and the pivotal roles of access, policy, and measurement.
During the private roundtable held in October 2021, 11 leaders from health systems, government, and advocacy groups shared progress on implementing telehealth and the future of telehealth as it relates to three key factors: access, policy, and measurement.
During the public virtual expert panel discussion, health system leaders from UPMC, Nicklaus Children’s Health System, and Mass General Brigham provide viewers with their perspectives and reflect on key points of importance made during the roundtable.
