During the COVID-19 pandemic, the federal government and many state governments went to great lengths to relax many of the restrictions on telehealth that had historically limited this medium in the provision of healthcare services to patients. However, in an effort to ensure that patients could continue to access necessary healthcare during this time period, exceptions had to be made to expand the means by which patients could access healthcare while in isolation. Now, with public health emergencies ending across the country, governments are making decisions as to which aspects of telehealth will return to pre-pandemic protocols and which will be allowed to remain in place as patients have grown accustomed to this alternative means of accessing healthcare services.

Greenbaum partner John W. Kaveney explores many of the decisions that have been made to date regarding telehealth, and discusses some that still must be decided, in an article that recently appeared in the Summer 2023 edition of Garden State Focus, a publication of the New Jersey Chapter of HFMA.
