The Current State of Telehealth from the FCC’s perspective – with Commissioner Brandon Carr

The COVID-19 pandemic really prompted a revolution for telehealth services. At the beginning of 2020, only 0.1% of all medical visits in the US each week were conducted via telemedicine. Fast forward to February this year, the overall telehealth use for office visits and outpatient care was 38 times higher than in 2020. Since the expansion of telehealth is largely dependent on access to high-speed internet service, in this episode FCC’s Commissioner Brendan Carr sits down with Kris Pusok to discuss the current challenges in the telehealth landscape and the FCC’s efforts in expanding this type of healthcare.
