Taskforce on Telehealth Policy Hosts Town Hall on August 4
The Taskforce on Telehealth Policy, convened by the ATA, National Committee for Quality Assurance, and the Alliance for Connected Care, is hosting a virtual Town Hall on August 4, for telehealth stakeholders to share their views on telehealth’s expanded use during the pandemic and its role in delivering high-quality healthcare and expanding access to services. 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.
The Taskforce is developing consensus recommendations for policymakers on how to maximize the benefits of telehealth services while maintaining high standards for care and healthcare delivery. 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, and Data Flow, Care Integration and Quality Measurement. Final recommendations will be issued in September.
