Panel Discussion: Providers Betting on Telehealth: From RPM to Primary Care and Digital Therapeutics

Sunday, October 27th at 10:25 – 11:15 am

Virtual care and the emerging field of digital therapeutics (DTx) are solving many of our biggest challenges, addressing a wide range of conditions across the spectrum of care, including behavioral health, chronic disease management and other complex/specialty care conditions. Telehealth is also expanding into primary care and being imbedded into population health management programs that are winning over front-line provider, hospitals and delivery systems. Learn why telehealth is fast becoming the front-runner in the race to redesigning healthcare delivery.

Panelists: Tim Wright, Chief Strategy Officer, InTouch Health;  Mike Baird, MBA, President, Customer Solutions, American Well; Anand Iyer, Chief Strategy Officer, WellDoc; Proteus
