Program Materials

This CLE webinar will provide guidance on the integration of telehealth into new payment and care delivery models and compliance with federal and state regulatory and reimbursement requirements. The panel will also discuss leveraging opportunities to facilitate the use of telehealth.

Description

The increased integration of innovative, consumer-centered telehealth technologies into healthcare delivery is changing the healthcare landscape in the U.S. This telehealth expansion is due in large part to the shift from fee-for-service payment towards value-based care.

One of the biggest challenges for providers’ looking to improve patient care through telehealth technologies is coverage and payment for telehealth services. Adequate reimbursement for telehealth services is a complex and evolving issue.

Physician practices and hospitals are increasingly relying on NPPs or mid-level providers, such as nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and nurse midwives, in the push for more cost-efficient healthcare and a physician shortage. Counsel must take steps to ensure providers comply with legal and regulatory standards to reduce legal risks.

Also, the use of apps and digital devices such as smartphones and tablets has increased among physicians and other healthcare providers. Use of these apps and devices creates legal risks, such as patient privacy and security, for healthcare professionals, hospitals, and other providers.

Listen as our authoritative panel of healthcare attorneys reviews how telehealth is being integrated into new payment and care delivery models, with particular attention to regulatory flexibilities and opportunities that are being offered to promote and facilitate the use of telehealth.
