Significant gaps exist in healthcare delivery, particularly in rural, remote communities but also for those in low-resource urban settings—made even more obvious by COVID-19. Digital healthcare information and service delivery, such as telehealth, could provide important opportunities to narrow those gaps. However, for digital healthcare delivery to be equitable, affordable, and usable, we must ensure that reliable, cost-effective, high-speed Internet service is be available to all communities. Underserved populations have been shown to be at significantly greater risk for poor health outcomes and added complications. This panel addressed the following questions:·  How do we make healthcare services more easily accessible and affordable?·  What infrastructural efforts must be made so as to meet the basic healthcare needs of underserved populations?·  How can network connectivity options more adequately support the efforts of community hospitals, clinics, and other service providers to reach patients where they are?·  How can we take the insights revealed by the COVID-19 pandemic to make longer-term fixes to our healthcare delivery systems?FIND THE CONVERSATION HEREFEATURINGModerator
