Newsday – IT Spending, Telehealth Expansion, and State Licensure for Telehealth

July 26, 2021: It’s Newsday with Ed Ricks, CEO, Director of Healthcare at Sirius Healthcare. A Gartner CIO report shows that IT spending is expected to increase for cyber, analytics and cloud. McKinsey reports that telehealth utilization has stabilized at levels 38X higher than before the pandemic. Why are states against easing licensing for telemedicine? Does it make sense? Walmart Health is getting licensed in 37 states to offer telehealth. What does that mean for the industry? Truveta Grows to More Than 15% of US patient care. HIEs are exploding globally. Why the exponential growth? And in hospital telehealth is not an oxymoron. During COVID, the benefits of it were obvious. However, what happens after COVID? 

Key Points:

  • Don’t look at it as a cybersecurity problem. Look at it as a risk management problem. [00:06:45] 
  • Behavioral health is currently the highest percentage of telehealth visits [00:21:45] 
  • Some of the most important work within our industry is around the USCDI [00:29:55] 
  • The more data the better. There's no doubt about it. [00:36:25]
