HIMSSCast: How telehealth will settle in through the pandemic beyond

Before COVID-19, many practices were hardly using telehealth for anything. During COVID-19, many practices had to use telehealth for nearly everything. The next era in telehealth will be about picking choosing the right use cases for telehealth.

On today’s HIMSSCast, Oak Street Health Regional Medical Director Dr. Laolu Fayanju joins Healthcare IT News Senior Editor Kat Jercich host Jonah Comstock to discuss telehealth, remote patient monitoring, choosing the right patients use cases for virtual care.
