In many ways, the COVID-19 crisis has stimulated the unprecedented growth and an emphasis on the use of telemedicine. It seems likely that telemedicine, already rapidly growing, will be further thrust into the mainstream of medical practice as a result. The increased utilization of telemedicine has also highlighted the challenges and obstacles that limit adoption including issues such as state licensure restrictions, reimbursement challenges, and the perceptions of healthcare providers and patients toward telemedicine interactions versus face to face interactions. Additionally, how can the world of healthcare adapt to the loss or modification of a the traditionally sacrosanct physical examination? Join us for an exciting on-demand webinar discussing these important issues facing telemedicine pioneers at this critical time.  We have an exciting group of presenters from many different roles and perspectives in telemedicine including industry, academia, military and government, and others.

This is the fourth and final webinar of a four-part series brought to you by Telemedicine and e-Health and sponsored by Amwell.
