This week on the EIM Clinical Podcast, Dr. John Childs and Dr. Jeff Moore welcome Dr. Alan Lee, an Associate Professor at Mount Saint Mary’s University in Los Angeles, to discuss telehealth and where we are as a profession in being able to adopt telehealth initiatives. They will also talk about some of the regulatory and payment challenges, and what the future looks like for telehealth.
