Welcome to ELEVATE, a new podcast from JPA Health. At ELEVATE, the JPA Public Affairs team will share best practices and innovative ideas to influence the changing health landscape. Every episode, JPA will explore issues and trends impacting the intersection of policy, business and society in health.
On episode one, JPA Senior Vice President Pat Brady is joined by Adjoa Kyerematen and Ryan Shucard, Vice Presidents at JPA, to discuss influencing the agenda of a split Senate to elevate the issue of telehealth.
As a direct response to COVID-19, telehealth has become less of a stopgap and more of a permanent way to provide care delivery to patients. Lawmakers are scrambling to introduce legislation that aim to expand telehealth access beyond the pandemic. But, with a split Senate what is the likelihood of any movement for permanent telehealth solutions in the near future?
