The theme of the 2022 annual CHASM conference was “Telehealth and Remote Care in a Post-Pandemic World.” Telehealth utilization grew by 78 fold during the pandemic as the need for safe means to access and deliver healthcare was greater than ever. This rapid expansion of telehealth was enabled by regulatory changes, some temporary and some permanent, which expanded reimbursement for telehealth-delivered care. Given that patient and provider willingness to use telehealth and the skills to do so have increased, a roadmap is now needed for virtual care models that serve the goals of improving access to care, outcomes, and affordability.

This conference featured keynote speakers and panelists who are studying and innovating virtual care models in medicine, mental health, physical therapy, pediatrics, underserved populations, and beyond. Topics including health equity, asynchronous interventions and care, and telehealth and the patient experience were discussed and debated.
