Silicon Valley (SV)

Healthcare Leaders CEO Group

2nd Tuesday of the month from | 8:30 – 11:30 am  | Mountain View, CA

Upcoming Meeting

June 14, 2022

Opening Discussion Topic:

What’s Ahead for Telehealth?

Last month, for the 10th time, the COVID-related Public Health Emergency was extended for another 90 days, which further solidified permanent advances toward telehealth reimbursement for Medicare beneficiaries’ visits anywhere in the country, more telehealth funding in rural areas, and the 99441 CPT code for audio-only telehealth reimbursement (which was also extended for 151 days). Plus, 86% of users surveyed said they’d like to continue using telehealth once the COVID PHE has passed.

During our Opening Discussion, we’ll look to hear your perspective on how telehealth has impacted your healthcare world so far, and your expectations – if it continues to grow – for how it could impact it even more in the future.

Then, our Featured Member, Jack Higgins, MD, President and Chief Medical Officer of the Global Telehealth Network (GTN), will share how his nonprofit GTN is recruiting physician volunteers who use web-based video from their homes or offices to provide free medical, surgical, and mental telehealth consults for health workers in hospitals and clinics in under-resourced countries, refugee camps, centers for victims of human trafficking, and in U.S. free clinics, too. He’s also on the cusp of launching United Telehealth System (UTS) as a Delaware Public Benefit Corporation. This for-profit, mission-driven, social enterprise will offer similar services for patients who are able to pay for their care.

RSVP today without delay!

Jack Higgins, MD, emphasized preventive health while in Family Medicine in the Chico area for 20 years, before becoming the CMO of Avantis Medical Systems, a medical device company focused on colon cancer screening. Since 2000, in addition to launching GTN, he’s been on the Board of RotaCare Bay Area, where he’s now President of the nonprofit that operates 10 free clinics in the Bay Area. Also, since 2001, he’s been the VP of Child Health and AIDS Prevention (CHAP), which is currently focused on preventing the transmission of HIV/AIDS from mother to baby.
