Partner Chérie Kiser Presents ITechLaw Webinar on Telehealth and COVID-19
Wednesday, April 22, 2020
On Wednesday, April 22, 2020 partner Chérie R. Kiser was a panelist on an ITechLaw webinar “Surge in US and UK Funding and New Policies Recognize Telehealth as a Vital Weapon Against COVID-19.” Prior to the current health crisis, telehealth and telemedicine were already altering the landscape of health care in the United States, providing exciting opportunities to expand health care to underserved communities and streamline services for patients and providers. In her webinar, Chérie discussed how the recently-enacted CARES Act and other federal initiatives are providing new sources of funding to support broadband deployment and health care providers to promote more rapid expansion of telehealth not only for the fight against this pandemic, but also for the future. Chérie was joined by Tim Ryan, a partner at DAC Beachcroft in the United Kingdom.
