This month, the Academy joined more than 30 patient and provider groups as a member of the Alliance for Connected Care Advisory Board. The goal of this new partnership is to advance advocacy strategies related to the value of telehealth. As a first step in this partnership, AAPM&R has signed on to the Alliance’s joint letter to state governors requesting that they maintain or expand licensure flexibilities for care across state lines during the ongoing pandemic. The Alliance has several key advocacy priorities that align with AAPM&R including expanding access to telehealth services by removing geographic and site limitations and ensuring appropriate reimbursement of providers for the delivery of telehealth.
