There wasn't even a clear definition of what qualified as a telehealth visit. Should doctors submit a telehealth claim for every patient phone call? Should real-time video visits be the primary catalysts for payment? Should telehealth be used mostly for primary-care treatments such as ear infections and colds? Should it include more specialized care like psychiatry?
A Q&A with Kimberly Shine, MD, Paladina Health Physician
I was able to sit down with Kimberly Shine, one of our physicians who practices in the Los Angeles area, at our provider summit this summer to ask her a few questions about her approach to healthcare. She’s been practicing medicine for over 15 years, the last three of which have been with Paladina Health. She shared insights about her approach to medicine and what she sees as different about the Paladina Health model of care.
At Paladina Health, I’ve had the opportunity to work with many thought leaders in healthcare. One thought leader I always learn something new from is Rick Gantt, Area Vice President for Gallagher Benefit Services. I had the chance to sit down with Rick recently to talk healthcare benefit design—drawing on his more than 20 years of experience in healthcare innovation.
