Lacktman Quoted on Telehealth’s Expansion to Complex Medical Cases

18 March 2017 Modern Healthcare News
Partner Nate Lacktman was quoted in a Modern Healthcare article, “Tapping Telehealth for Complex Cases,” which covers how physicians are beginning to utilize telehealth capabilities to offer remote assistance for high-acuity patients. The article discusses telehealth’s positive effects on low-acuity patients thanks to direct-to-consumer telehealth platforms and explores the potential for the service to move into the high-acuity space.

Lacktman was quoted saying that direct-to-consumer companies “have done a good job of expanding access to low-acuity care. But health systems are well-positioned to use technology to care for the ‘sickest of the sick’ who account for the greatest share of healthcare spending.” He pointed out that the health system to “crack that nut … will be a game-changer.”
