Seeking to address the complicated issues related to many state and federal laws trailing rapidly evolving technological services, Ex-senator Thomas A. Daschle (D-S.D.), with help from former senators Trent Lott (R-Miss.) and John Breaux (D-La.), created a coalition of companies at the intersection of health and technology to push for changing regulations governing telehealth. Current members of the Alliance for Connected Care, which launched publicly last month, include Verizon, WellPoint, CVS and Walgreens, among others.

“Telehealth services are rapidly becoming a very important part of health-care delivery under the new paradigm, but we unfortunately don’t have a regulatory environment or policy environment that accommodates the new technology,” Daschle said in an interview. “It hasn’t been changed in about 15 years.”
