Telehealth services were a necessity as the COVID-19 crisis began. Now, it’s here to stay.

Panelists include representatives from independent primary care practices; Aledade, a national network of physician-led accountable care organizations (ACOs); and representatives from The Ohio State University Physicians, Inc., a multispecialty physician group.
This 60-minute webinar will provide you with the knowledge to:
- Compare small and large practices that successfully implemented and adopted telehealth quickly for long-term revenue
- Analyze the optimization of telehealth in the COVID-19 era
- Point out future opportunities to deliver patient care with telehealth
