Nathaniel Lacktman, Chair of Foley & Lardner’s national Telemedicine & Digital Health Industry Team, will be the speaker at the 2021 Business of Vascular Medicine Symposium on February 27-28, 2021. His presentation is titled, “Telehealth and Vascular Medicine.”
While the COVID Public Health Emergency did not create the telehealth industry, it certainly accelerated its growth. A major catalyst for the growth in 2020 was a wide variety of expansions on coverage/payment for telehealth services, coupled with waivers on state licensure requirements. Together, the reduction of administrative barriers and the confidence of insurance reimbursement allowed telehealth companies to rapidly scale and grow, as well as experiment with new and different delivery models. While some of these waivers are temporary and will expire when the Public Health Emergency ends, not all waivers will end. And the lessons learned from 2020 might help propel policy arguments, supported by real-world clinical outcomes data, to make permanent many of these waivers.
