Telehealth and COVID-19 in Rural Areas

This event has passed.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, the United States has adapted its technology and policies to accommodate health care delivery at a distance. While telehealth use has drastically increased during the pandemic, the regulatory changes that made this possible are not permanent.

Join the Bipartisan Policy Center on June 4th as experts on Capitol Hill and health care providers in the field discuss the current state of telehealth. The event will highlight health IT policy recommendations from BPC’s recently released rural health report and ways to make telehealth a regular service for patients, especially in rural areas.
