Packer Perspective: September 2020
on September 14, 2020
“Success is not final; failure is not fatal. It is the courage to continue that counts.” – Winston Churchill
I found this quote to be quite appropriate for the current times we are going through this year with the pandemic. Remember that U.S. Rehab and VGM are here for your success and to help ensure that you do not have failure—and that it is not fatal if you do have some.
I am very excited to share a recent podcast that was recorded with Dr. Mark Schmeler, Dan Fedor, Kyle Walker, and myself about a new educational program focused around telehealth and CRT. In this episode, we discuss the history of telehealth, how providers are willing to challenge the status quo by embracing untraditional methods for assessments and non-billable services within virtual technology, the policies surrounding telehealth services from a payer standpoint, and how telehealth is not a one-size-fits-all solution. It is imperative to continue working on this and determine all variables so providers can address the needs of the patient and best serve them.
Embracing telehealth is multi-faceted. From the standpoint of payers, clinicians, and providers, they all go hand-in-hand as our industry continues to transition to the pay-for-performance model of value-based care. When thinking about the future of telehealth and what healthcare services look like for the CRT industry, it is essential to remember to show the effectiveness of these services for the patient and how they can lead to positive outcomes.
