How to Deal with the Legal Roadblocks and Expand Access in the Telemedicine Sector

Telemedicine is an excellent way to expand access to care and decrease costs. But despite its bright future, its progress continues to be hampered by legal issues. Although some solutions are better for some problems than for others, you must know the current trends, key issues and legal considerations to reduce your financial, legal and regulatory risk.

In this Virtual Boot Camp, industry veteran Joseph McMenamin will get you up to speed with all the key legal issues you need to be aware of. You will learn about doctor-patient relationship, prescribing rules, licensure, privacy and security issues, and both professional and product liability. You will also learn about informed consent, insurance, clinical practice guidelines and corporate practice issues. McMenamin will provide valuable insights on reimbursement, credentialing and privileging, direct-to-consumer service and home telehealth, the role of FTC, FDA and FCC, and international telemedicine.

McMenamin will discuss state law controls, and use examples to illustrate some of the common approaches. He will also discuss reimbursements and payments controlled by Medicare, including its new and evolving rules governing remote patient monitoring, as well as chronic care management, Medicaid, and commercial payers.

After attending this information-packed Virtual Boot Camp, you will be able to reduce your legal, financial, and regulatory risk by confidently navigating the most complex legal issues. You will also be able to optimize your reimbursements and attract more clinicians and patients.
