Telehealth = Health: The New Normal: July “First” Friday

July 9, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am

Dr. Joe Kvedar

Two notes: due to the holidays and Dr. Kvedar’s schedule, our program will be neither “First” nor “Friday”. We are also requesting a small registration fee to help us with expenses normally covered by our in-person events.

Just a few short months ago we had the honor of welcoming Dr. Joe Kvedar as a speaker on the emerging field of telemedicine, and much of the discussion revolved around the obstacles and barriers to its embracement given the position of conventional medical and insurance stakeholders. Then along came COVID19 and telemedicine was not only adopted overnight but hailed as our greatest salvation. We are delighted to welcome Dr. Kvedar back for a follow-up discussion of how this startling transformation occurred and what it means for our health care system and the public as we move through the pandemic and into the “new normal.”

Dr. Joe Kvedar has focused on driving innovation, creating the market and gaining acceptance for connected health for nearly three decades. He is now applying his expertise, insights and influence to advancing adoption of telehealth and virtual care technologies at the national level. He is the author of two books: The Internet of Healthy Things and The New Mobile Age: How Technology Will Extend the Healthspan and Optimize the Lifespan.

He has launched numerous innovative health tracking, mobile and virtual care programs, and research initiatives at Partners-affiliated hospitals, including Brigham and Women’s and Massachusetts General Hospitals.

Dr. Kvedar is President of the American Telemedicine Association, the only organization completely focused on advancing telehealth. The ATA and its members have been working with members of Congress, the White House and other government contacts to expand the use of telehealth services to meet rapidly growing demand, and creating best practices to support the safe, effective, long-term adoption of telehealth.
