Three unanswered questions for telehealth's future

The COVID-19 pandemic reshaped the telehealth landscape. Many physicians and patients had their first experience with a telehealth visit as lockdown measures limited in-person physician offices.

Health Affairs' Chris Fleming and Rob Lott join Health Affairs This Week to discuss a recently published series of blog articles on the topic and unpack the biggest questions regarding the future of telehealth, including:  Should Medicare continue payment parity? Where does payment reform stand on telehealth? What are current barriers affecting implementation of telehealth?  Related Links: The Coming Conflict Over Tele-Visits: The Need For Innovation In Payment And Information Sharing (Health Affairs Blog) Understanding The Case For Telehealth Payment Parity (Health Affairs Blog) Congress: Act Now To Ensure Telehealth Access For Medicare Benefits (Health Affairs Blog) Mutual Recognition Of Physician Licensure By States Would Provide For Better Patient Care (Health Affairs Blog) How Telehealth Can Enable New Care Management Strategies In Alternative Payment Models (Health Affairs Blog) Subscribe: RSS | Apple Podcasts | Spotify | Castro | Stitcher | Deezer | Overcast

Establishing an AI Maturity Framework with Trace3

May 12, 2021: AI is what’s going to separate healthcare organizations in the next 5 to 10 years. If you're leveraging data in a meaningful way then you're going to make a much larger impact. Matt Fornito, Head of Artificial Intelligence at Trace3 is breaking the innovation curve by educating and leading with game-changing technologies and systems. What can be done to make doctors, nurses and healthcare workers lives easier and how do we improve patient care in the process? Augmentation through AI will reduce costs, reduce the number of treatments and get patients in and out the door, faster and happier. How do you set up an organization for success in AI? What core technologies do you need to have in place? Is there governance to help suss out bias and ethical issues? Who are the key players that have taken the lead in the AI technology space? Key Points:Industrial organizational psychology [00:04:15] A CIO is less about technology and more about change management. Really moving an organization from point A to point B. [00:04:30] Is there a business problem? And is there data that can help answer that business problem? If that's the case, then AI can help solve it. [00:06:00] There’s 3 main types of use cases - prediction, classification and clusters [00:08:40] In all the analyses I've seen and done the value of every dollar invested in AI is conservatively 5 to 10 X and up to 30 X for every dollar spent [00:18:35] Trace3
