What matters to Payors and Legislators
Healthcare using a wide variety of modalities has been provided to Americans for several decades, started by the military and Veteran’s Administration. For the most part, few providers were reimbursed for care provided using these modalities until COVID-19 in early 2020. Since then, physicians, as well as other provider types have been reimbursed for care by video, telephone, and remote monitoring. How should reimbursement be continued post-pandemic? How should this be decided?
The following care modalities are included under the telehealth umbrella below:
Reimbursement should be driven by the achievement of specific goals including, but not limited to:
Payors, legislators and regulators, clinicians, and healthcare administrators
Work Stream Leaders
Jan Ground PT, MBA, led innovation and virtual care at Kaiser Permanente Colorado, where she worked for 18 years. Jan leads several American Telemedicine Association (ATA) Special Interest Group sub committees. Ms. Ground’s expertise is in leading change, a significant need in implementing virtual care, and in working with leaders to clearly define a measurable problem before implementing a new approach to care. Her greatest passion is working with healthcare leaders to lower the cost of the American healthcare system without lowering clinical outcomes and to improving clinical outcomes without increasing the cost.
