The pandemic tipped telehealth from a disruptive technology into
the mainstream, according to the AMA. We invited John Jesser, President
of Clinical Solutions at Amwell, to tell us what the surge in
telehealth looks like from the vantage point of a global telehealth
leader; the implications for consumers, providers, payers, and
digital health innovators; technical, operational, and regulatory
barriers that remain; and what telehealth might look like and how
it might change after the pandemic.
Joining Amwell’s Jesser is Jonathan Parks, VP of Business
Development at Change Healthcare. Here’s what they discussed.
