Telehealth and value-based care — with Dr. Andrew Watson

On today’s HIMSSCast, we welcome Dr. Andrew Watson, medical director of telehealth for the UPMC health plan, and Susan Morse, Healthcare Finance News managing editor, to discuss the link between telehealth and value-based care: how new payment models can enable adoption of telehealth and how technologies like telehealth can push the industry towards new payment models, as well as the extent to which both of these things have happened during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This podcast is part of our Workplace Re-entry series and is brought to you by Zoom for Healthcare. It is a companion piece to this HIMSS TV episode with Danielle Louder.
