When the Covid-19 pandemic hit, healthcare organizations were granted an opportunity to test the viability of telehealth on a large scale. And while so far it has been a success, what happens next is most important, says Liz Johnson.
Although telehealth usage has significantly increased during the Covid-19 pandemic, little is known about its impact on patient care, according to Liz Johnson. In this interview, she talks about how CHIME is working to change that – and making a case for more flexibility.
When lives are put in danger and treatment is denied due to the lack of a unified patient identification, it’s time for action, says Liz Johnson, who talks about the progress that has been made, and what still needs to happen.
“We need to be able to present data in a way that patients can use it and understand it,” says Liz Johnson, who was recognized at the CHIME19 Fall Forum for her unwavering dedication to improving care through advocacy and education.
No one knows better than healthcare IT leaders how digital health regulations might remove a barrier or disrupt care, which is why it’s more important than ever for CIOs to find their voice – and use it, says Liz Johnson.
