Historically, the Legislature has been slow to make telehealth widely available.
However, Congress is easing previously stringent telehealth restrictions to meet the need for such services that can protect populations, particularly vulnerable groups, from the risk of exposure from hospital or doctor’s office visits.
The changes are happening at national and state levels to ensure widespread availability and adoption, creating an opportunity for improvement and innovation in telehealth.
While these bills are an important step toward creating a more connected, better-prepared healthcare system, we need to think strategically about how we arm ourselves with these new capabilities and how we can ensure a more equitable healthcare future. With congressional support and technical ingenuity, we believe that telehealth can become the standard for healthcare in the near future.
