Lacktman Comments on Wisdom of Virtual Medicine Specialty

29 November 2017 Fierce Healthcare News
Partner Nate Lacktman is quoted in a Fierce Healthcare article, “Does Healthcare Need a Virtual Medicine Specialty? Experts Aren’t So Sure,” about a proposal being floated by two physicians for a new medical specialty focusing primarily on virtual care.

Lacktman said the idea of a medical virtualist “betrays” the notion that virtual services should be viewed as another conduit to patient care. With telehealth still in the early stages of adoption – and health systems refining its use – he’d prefer that providers experiment with the technology before diving in to specialty care.

“It’s still early in the process,” he said. “Before we start laying the lines of what could be a turf war, let’s just use it and explore it.”
