Program Materials

This CLE webinar will provide healthcare counsel with guidance for drafting and negotiating telemedicine agreements on behalf of telemedicine/mobile health (mHealth) companies, healthcare organizations, physician groups, and telemedicine end-users. The panel will discuss current trends in contract negotiations, critical provisions in the agreements, and strategies for resolving common areas of dispute.


To improve patient access and quality of care, and due to recent developments in technology and delivery systems, healthcare providers are increasingly using telemedicine solutions or patient clinical services provided by distant practitioners using electronic communication methods.

As telemedicine expands and reliance on telemedicine practitioners grows, healthcare counsel, organizations, and practitioners must carefully negotiate and structure agreements to ensure regulatory compliance, navigate risks that come with implementing telemedicine practices, provide quality care, and minimize liability. The evolving telemedicine landscape highlights the need for multiple agreements as no single agreement will address the various components of a telemedicine arrangement.

Depending on the purpose of the telemedicine agreement, there are several issues to address in advance of any business relationship, including intellectual property issues, transactional matters, FDA compliance, cybersecurity insurance, patient privacy, information security, fraud and abuse concerns, and reimbursement. Further, parties to telemedicine agreements must anticipate areas of dispute and take steps to minimize potential exposure for nonperformance of obligations under a contract.

Listen as the panel offers best practices for negotiating and structuring telemedicine agreements. The panel will discuss current trends in telemedicine practices and contract negotiations, the various agreements to consider, critical provisions in telemedicine agreements, and strategies for resolving common areas of dispute.
