Background: A steep increase in the use of delivery of virtual care occurred during the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE) because of easing up of payment and coverage restrictions. With the end of PHE, there is uncertainty regarding continued coverage and payment parity for the virtual care services. Methods: On November 8, 2022, The Mass General Brigham held the Third Annual Virtual Care Symposium: Demystifying Clinical Appropriateness in Virtual Care and What's Ahead for Pay Parity. Results: In one of the panels, experts from Mayo Clinic led by Dr. Bart Demaerschalk discussed key issues related to "Payment and Coverage Parity for Virtual Care and In-Person Care: How Do We Get There?" The discussions centered around current policies around payment and coverage parity for virtual care, including state licensure laws for virtual care delivery and the current evidence base regarding outcomes, costs, and resource utilization associated with virtual care. The panel discussion ended with highlighting next steps targeting policymakers, payers, and industry groups to help strengthen the case for parity. Conclusions: To ensure the continued viability of virtual care delivery, legislators and insurers must address the coverage and payment parity between telehealth and in-person visits. This will require a renewed focus on research on clinical appropriateness, parity, equity and access, and economics of virtual care.

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: With improvement in survival after hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT), it has become important to focus on the late complications experienced by the survivors that may lead to late mortality and morbidity to be able to provide patient-centered care across the transplant continuum. The goals of this article are to describe the status of literature on late complications in HCT survivors; offer a brief overview of the status of the screening, prevention, and management of these complications; and identify opportunities for future practice and research. RECENT FINDINGS: This is an exciting time for the field with increasing awareness about survivorship issues. Studies are moving beyond description to examining pathogenesis of these late complications and identifying biomarkers. The eventual goal is to promote changes in our transplant techniques to decrease the incidence of these complications as well as help develop interventions targeting these late effects. There is also an emphasis on improving health care delivery models to provide optimal post-HCT management for medical and psychosocial complications through close coordination between multiple stakeholders and leveraging technology to help address the barriers in delivery of care to fulfill the unmet needs in this area. The increasing population of HCT survivors with their burden of late effects underscores the need for concerted efforts to improve long-term medical and psychosocial outcomes for this group.
