Barbra Rabson Featured in Boston Globe Front Page Article on Telehealth

(June 15, 2020)

We are thrilled to have Barbra Rabson quoted as the lead interview for a Boston Globe front page article about telehealth entitled “Forced by the Pandemic, Health Care Plunges into the Digital Age.”

“Even as other aspects of life went digital, ‘the health care system lagged behind for years and years,’ said Barbra Rabson, president and CEO of Massachusetts Health Quality Partners. ‘All it took was a pandemic and the system changed overnight.’

“Massachusetts Health Quality Partners, a nonprofit concerned with measuring and improving health care, has been interviewing doctors and patients in preparation for a survey about telehealth in the fall. The researchers are hearing mostly positive anecdotes.

‘Patients are really grateful that this is an option,’ said Rabson, the group’s president. ‘Sometimes the technology is a little rough around the edges. But it’s helping them stay safely at home.’”
