DESCRIPTION

As telemedicine expands and reliance on telemedicine practitioners grows, health care organizations, practitioners, and entrepreneurs must take steps to navigate the many risks that come with implementing telemedicine practices, minimize liability, protect patient privacy, and ensure quality of care.  In this dynamic health care environment, there is no single effective telemedicine business model.

Successful telemedicine practices must address several issues in advance of their development, including credentialing and privileging, peer review, licensure, consent and other practice standards, patient privacy and information security, fraud and abuse, and written agreements.

This program will provide guidance to health care organizations, practitioners, and entrepreneurs for the development and maintenance of telemedicine practices in a slow-to-change legal landscape.  The speakers will examine recent telemedicine trends, review the requirements of the CMS rule on credentialing and privileging and lessons learned since it has been in effect, discuss the interplay among federal and state laws, medical board guidance on telemedicine, and new telemedicine guidelines from professional associations, and address developments in telemedicine technologies amid increasing regulatory oversight.

Educational Objectives:
• Discuss telemedicine trends
• Explore CMS telemedicine rule on credentialing, privileging and lessons learned
• Analyze the impact on health care organizations, practitioners, and entrepreneurs
• Explain Individual state requirements 
• Examine the impact of new guidance and guidelines

Who would benefit most from attending this program?
Heath care practitioners, organizations and entrepreneurs.
