LLP 204: The Future of Telehealth with Dr. Laura Purdy

Let's talk about the future of telehealth …

Many individuals are unfamiliar with the term “telehealth.” It is the use of electronic information, telecommunications, and technologies to help with long-distance clinical health care.

Today, we are joined by our special guest Dr. Laura Purdy to learn more about telehealth. Our guest is a board-certified family medicine physician who is wrapping up 14 years as an officer in the US Army. She started working in telemedicine in 2016 as a full-time physician and became medical director of MDLIVE. She has also co-founded two telehealth companies and is now lobbying at the federal level to influence change that increases access to care and reduces disparities in telehealth.

In this episode we aim to learn more about:

  • The future + benefits of Telehealth visits
  • How the government can get involved in order to help Telehealth practices thrive
  • Why Telehealth is important + what can be done to improve the system overall
  • What Telehealth was prior to COVID
  • Importance of Telehealth
