Telehealth’s benefits of convenience, chronic disease management, and better care coordination are widely known. The pandemic has added other benefits directly related to the senior living industry: reduced exposure of third-party providers to vulnerable residents; improved billing and reimbursement models from CMS; and HIPAA flexibility during the crisis. What capabilities could telehealth provide related to testing and screening for the next wave of COVID-19? What will the long-term impact be to senior living organizations as telehealth implementations progress and resident adoption increases? What impact might telehealth have on community staffing levels? One thing is certain: telehealth is here to stay. This session will provide both a tactical and strategic overview of this care delivery model and its impact on senior living.
