LITTLE ROCK AR., – October 13, 2021 – The Society for Education and the Advancement of Research and Connected Health (SEARCH) will be hosting the sixth annual National Telehealth Research Symposium November 8-10, 2021.
The National Telehealth Research Symposium connects health researchers, academicians, and visionaries in telehealth and telemedicine to share findings and foster partnerships. These goals are more relevant today, in the pandemic’s digital world than ever before – with the U.S. seeing a 154% increase in telehealth visits during the first quarter of 2020, according to the CDC.
“Patients and providers have realized from the COVID pandemic that telemedicine is a viable and important complement and even alternate in many cases to traditional in-person care,” said Elizabeth Krupinski, Vice President and Co-Founder of SEARCH. “However, there is still lots of room to optimize and better integrate or synergize telehealth into healthcare systems and environments. SEARCH is the place to find out how people are doing this.”
At the virtual symposium, attendees will hear from nationally-recognized leaders in telehealth and healthcare including Elise Sweeny Anthony, Executive Director of Policy at ONC; Hari Eswaran, Professor at UAMS Institute for Digital Health & Innovation; Keith Kanel, Chief Medical Officer for the Pittsburgh Regional Health Initiative; and Wakina Scott, Director of the Health Resources and Services Administration.
“Attendees learn first-hand from those doing research about state-of-the-art telehealth topics,” said Krupinski. “Keynote speakers provide broad perspectives on telehealth from funding to policy to lessons learned.”

Throughout the three-day event, panels will cover a variety of topics on telehealth including research infrastructure in academic medical centers, research tools, methods & policy, equity, education, and more.
