Notwithstanding the PHE-related waivers and flexibility, Breuer further discusses how regulators continue to monitor and enforce telehealth requirements. She also addresses the evolution of telehealth from the perspective of an established digital health provider, including increased utilization in behavioral health.
Next, Breuer highlights health equity and the expansion of telehealth, featuring a nursing home case study. Lastly, she explains what telehealth providers need to be aware of regarding regulatory requirements, such as documentation, and increased compliance enforcement efforts.
