DESCRIPTION

As new technologies allow access to health care for more and more people, many providers have expanded their business model from traditional medical groups into thriving, multi-state telemedicine practices. The faculty presenting this program will discuss how telemedicine can be integrated into a current health care practice structure while maintaining quality of care and complying with applicable legal standards.

Legal considerations to be discussed include state licensing requirements, the use of non-physician practitioners, prescribing drugs, privacy and data security laws, informed consent laws, corporate issues and standards of care.

Educational Objectives:
• Learn about compliance issues related to expanding an existing medical practice into a growing one practicing telemedicine.
• Understand the regulatory and operational considerations of creating a virtual clinic.
• Find out how a virtual clinic becomes a viable business by understanding different business models and reimbursement issues that arise in telemedicine practice.
• Discover current telemedicine delivery models through the use of a case study.

Who would benefit most from attending this program?
Attorneys advising and counseling health care providers with telemedicine services.
