We're wrapping up our special series on telehealth with a conversation with Georgia Maheras of Bi-State Primary Care Association, where we hit on some of the highlights of what we discussed over the season.

A few items referenced in this conversation that we have not previously linked are: VPQHC Twice-Weekly Telehealth Office Hours, I reference some early data which we discussed in a 2-part webinar series with VPQHC that will be posted here (June 11 & June 18), and we refer to the Milbank study on eConsults.

Also, I refer to federal reimbursement policy opening up telehealth options then possibly shutting back down again; this conversation was recorded shortly before CMS started to codify some changes to telehealth reimbursement (although it's worth noting that several important changes need to come directly from Congress).

About the same time we recorded this episode, the Freakonomics podcast came out with their summary of telehealth and the economics of telehealth. That would be a nice geeky prelude to browsing our full series:
