WEBINAR: A New Era in Telemedicine: Opportunities, Challenges, and What Comes Next
Webinar on Tuesday, January 31, 2023, 09:00 am EST
COVID-19 ushered in a telemedicine boom in health systems across the globe. How did this massive shift to virtual care impact healthcare performance, and what comes next? Join the Commonwealth Fund, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and the Institute of Global Health Innovation at Imperial College London for a virtual discussion on the future of telemedicine, findings from a newly released report examining the effects of remote care in OECD countries, and the national policies that led to its widespread use.
Speakers discussed opportunities and challenges related to implementing and scaling virtual care, including: building the necessary data infrastructure, creating effective payment arrangements, ensuring care is centered on patient needs, and elevating key priorities for policymakers to consider in the future.
