Foley: Episode 6: Telehealth Technology in Long-Term Care


January 15, 2020

In this episode, Nathaniel Lacktman, Chair of Foley & Lardner’s national Telemedicine & Digital Health Industry Team, sits down with West Health Institute’s Director of Telehealth, Michael Kurliand, and Chief Medical Officer and Executive Vice President, Dr. Zia Agha. They discuss how telehealth fits into the senior care environment and engages with patients to influence successful aging at home in America.

“The focus is on providing resources through the foundation, providing new knowledge, new models of care and evidence through the institute, and then providing information and advocacy through the policy center.”

“…there is a lot of interest and that just even our discussion around the topic, and having the implementation guide at hand, has given folks the confidence to really dig deeper into telehealth for their organization.”

“At least for virtual in PALTC, it’s not, or ought not to be, about the technology, what the product is, but the environmental and situational factors, which cause PALTCs to want and should use virtual care.”
