Telehealth continues to gain traction in the health care industry. Today, more than 75 million Americans have telehealth as a covered medical benefit through their health plans. According to studies, 70 percent of consumers reported they'd rather have an online video visit with their doctor to obtain a prescription than visit the doctor's office in person.

On Episode 16 of The Cerner Podcast, Dr. Roy Schoenberg, president and CEO of American Well, a leading national telehealth company, discusses direct-to-consumer virtual care and the impact telehealth has on clinical effectiveness, efficiency and workflow implications.

In this episode, Roy answers these five questions:

  1. As CEO of a leading telehealth supplier, what major trends have you seen that support the evolution of telehealth? And how does the government incentivize telehealth (or not)?
  2. What role does the EHR and patient portals play in the world of telehealth?
  3. What is technology's role in helping bridge the patient and the clinician outside of the traditional hospital setting?
  4. What is your advice for provider organizations looking to implement an effective telehealth strategy?
  5. What do you see the next 5 - 10 years look like?
