In many countries, telemedicine is playing an important role in COVID-19 pandemic response and may have an increased role in non-COVID-19 service delivery going forward. Join us for a discussion of telemedicine in the three largest countries of the world–China, India, and the United States. Panelists will discuss the policies around insurance coverage, pricing, and quality of telemedicine and the role that telemedicine may have in the regular health care delivery system for years to come.

Sponsored by Fairbank Center for Chinese Studies and Harvard China Health Partnership. Co-sponsored by the Mittal South Asia Institute and the Harvard University Asia Center. This panel discussion is presented as part of 24 Hours of Harvard,” a special feature of Worldwide Week at Harvard 2020.
