COVID-19 has had a significant impact on our healthcare system, most notably, the increased use and widespread adoption of telehealth. Many patients and providers in New Jersey and across the country, have come to rely on telehealth services during the pandemic and do not want to abruptly lose access to those services once the public health emergency period ends. Array Behavioral Care CEO Geoffrey Boyce recently penned an op ed with Ann Mond Johnson, CEO of the American Telemedicine Association, calling on NJ Governor Murphy to support legislation to ensure NJ residents have permanent access to virtual care. New Jersey cannot afford to squander this opportunity and take a step backward. Patients overwhelmingly want to use telehealth, providers appreciate its ability to help them better deliver care and manage patients’ health, and it’s a lifeline for so many of the patients too often left behind by our healthcare system.
