Webinar: “COVID-19 and the Future of Behavioral Health Care Delivery” - Tuesday, May 11, 2021 at 2:30 p.m. Eastern Time

National Council for Behavioral Health

The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a broad and swift shift to telehealth for many behavioral health providers. In many cases, these adaptations focused on rapidly defining and launching short-term actions to stabilize operations and maintain patient safety and access. As we settle into a new normal that is likely to sustain expanded use of telehealth, it is critical to assess the impact and lessons learned over the past year and use them to inform future service delivery that promotes quality, improved patient access to services and outcomes. This session will explore the experiences and implications of telehealth practice and policy during COVID-19 and beyond from provider, payer and state perspectives.

Presenters
Robert Myers, PhD, Senior Deputy Commissioner, Community Program Management and Managed Care, NYSOMH
Martin Rosenzweig, MD, Behavioral Chief Medical Officer, Optum Behavioral Health
Carolyn Rekerdres, MD, Psychiatrist, Areté Community Psychiatry Solutions

Today, telemedicine is one of the fastest growing sectors in healthcare. Specifically, COVID-19 has enhanced and accelerated the role that telemedicine plays within our healthcare system. It is reshaping the landscape of healthcare delivery in the United States, and is being recognized as the future of global healthcare. Telehealth addresses and achieves the basic tenants of Healthcare Reform: providing the population with access to improved and convenient, high quality patient centric care, enhancing outcomes, while reducing per capita expenditures. Today, more than 70 percent of hospitals throughout the United States are engaged in telehealth programs. Studies have shown that the benefits of telehealth include significantly improved outcomes, efficient care delivery as well as reduction in mortality rates, hospitalizations, length of stay, readmissions and healthcare costs. Telehealth has greatly enhanced access to quality care in rural areas and patient satisfaction has increased due to its convenience and patient centric approach.
