The pandemic has resulted in a dramatic expansion of telehealth services, especially in Maine; these services have allowed for safe access to care for millions of Americans, though the legislative, regulatory, and payment changes that made this possible are not permanent. This panel discussion will focus on how policymakers and healthcare providers can work together to consider the investments and changes needed to sustain access to 21st-century quality healthcare through telehealth to meet the needs of Americans.

The panel will featureJennifer Lundblad, President & CEO, Stratis Health; Dena McDonough, Associate Director, Health Project, Bipartisan Policy Center; Dr. Lisa Miller, Family Medicine Physician, Western Maine Health; and Scott Oxley, President, Northern Light Acadia Hospital.
