This CLE course will guide healthcare counsel on artificial intelligence (AI) in telehealth and the associated legal issues that arise. The panel will discuss the benefits and risks of AI in telehealth and offer best practices for navigating the legal challenges.

Description

During the pandemic, there has been a significant increase in the use of telehealth services and the number of healthcare providers offering telehealth services. At the same time, healthcare providers, including providers of telehealth, are increasingly incorporating AI into their operations for a range of purposes. As AI and telehealth converge and the use of digital and consumer technologies to deliver virtual care increases, there are a number of legal and regulatory considerations for telehealth providers.

Telehealth is one of the newer services to utilize AI widely, from clinical evaluation to telemonitoring, to virtual health assistants and more. However, while AI has many benefits, there are also risks, such as data privacy and security issues and the potential for bias and overreliance on technology.

Further, there are legal challenges with AI that must be considered and overcome. Licensing issues may arise if a patient resides in one state and the healthcare provider is in another state. Further, what becomes the standard of care in a malpractice context?

Listen as our authoritative panel of healthcare attorneys examines the use of AI in telehealth and the associated legal issues that arise. The panel will discuss the benefits and risks of AI in telehealth and offer best practices for navigating the legal challenges.
