Dr. Mark Schmeler, Associate Professor and the Vice Chair for Education Training in the Department of Rehabilitation Science & Technology at the University of Pittsburgh, Dan Fedor, Director of Reimbursement for U.S. Rehab, Kyle Walker, Director of Operations of Assistive Technology with VGM Homelink, and Greg Packer, President of U.S. Rehab, talk about a new educational program focused around telehealth and CRT. In this episode, they 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. This is first of a series of podcasts about the new telehealth course.
