“Telehealth and the Patient Experience” will encourage participants to think about telehealth from the perspective of the patient. How has it impacted access? How have organizations worked to be inclusive with their technology and telehealth approaches for underserved and non-English speaking communities? What are payors thinking about all of this, and how are they ensuring their product offerings are inclusive and fitting for the populations they serve? How has this impacted the provider experience?
