'Podnosis': What can be done about errors in health records, and the postpandemic telepsychiatry sector

A major weak point in healthcare is the patient handoff, where it is key to accurately exchange patient information between caregivers, such as medications the patient is on or symptoms they are experiencing. Fierce Healthcare’s Anastassia Gliadkovskaya talks with Subha Airan-Javia, M.D., a Penn Medicine physician and founder and CEO of CareAlign, about how to address this crisis. 

Also, Annie Burky talks with attorney Sunny Levine, who specializes in the law of health tech regulatory compliance, about what telemedicine companies—in particular telepsychiatry firms—will face with the looming end of the public health emergency. Without any regulatory changes, remote care will roll back to prepandemic standards, significantly hurting access to key medications.
