(Nasdaq: OPRX), a leading provider of digital health solutions for life science companies and payers, will continue its webinar series on COVID-19 next week to address the rapid adoption of telehealth with industry veterans from Carla Smith Health and Genius Rx.
This will be the sixth in a series of webinars OptimizeRx has been hosting to facilitate industry collaboration across healthcare verticals in response to COVID-19. The conversation around telehealth brings together thought leaders with deep industry relationships who have driven innovation in the healthcare space through the implementation of disruptive technologies and strategic collaboration.
The panel will be moderated by OptimizeRx president, Miriam Paramore. She will be joined by Carla Smith, CEO of Carla Smith Health.

Topic: Learning Together—The Rapid Adoption of Telehealth During COVID-19. Will it Stick? In the face of social distancing to prevent further spread of the coronavirus, telehealth has emerged as the safest and most viable way to ensure patients have access to medical consults and care.
While telehealth is not new, it is suddenly experiencing unprecedented demand and easing of regulations because of the coronavirus crisis. Will this lead to a more permanent use of telehealth? Will broader telehealth initiatives persist after the pandemic subsides? The discussion will address the intricacies and opportunities of this extraordinary moment for telehealth, the growing importance of virtual care and its place in telehealth, and what these changes mean for the healthcare industry as a whole.
Date: Wednesday, April 22
Time: 1:00 p.m. ET
