Telehealth Stakeholders, mark your calendar now. It’s a late chance to weigh in on the future of remote care–an opportunity to influence and inform policymakers in your own words with the Taskforce on Telehealth Policy.

What: Telehealth Policy Public Comment Town Hall

Through this virtual session, telehealth stakeholders can share their views on the challenges and opportunities that have emerged with the explosion of telehealth use during the Covid-19 pandemic and identify policies that will advance its safe and effective use.

More than 300 stakeholders have already submitted written comments. The public comment site remains open for written submissions. All public input will be closely considered as the taskforce prepares recommendations to policymakers.

Who: The Taskforce on Telehealth Policy (And you.)

Convened by National Committee for Quality Assurance, the Alliance for Connected Care and the American Telemedicine Association, the Taskforce on Telehealth Policy includes a broad spectrum of health plan executives, providers, consumer advocates and health quality experts from the public, private and non-profit sectors.

The Taskforce has already begun to review submitted comments in breakout groups focused on three critical policy areas:

  • Expanding Telehealth and its Effect on Total Cost of Care
  • Enhancing Patient Safety and Program Integrity in Telehealth
  • Data Flow, Care Integration and Quality MeasurementFinal recommendations will be issued in September.
