  • 2018 Telemedicine Webinar Series, Part III - On Demand Recording

But with more reimbursement opportunities comes more regulatory risk.

  • The Intersection of Public Health and Healthcare in the 21st Century: Hot Topics and Practice Tips, All Parts - On Demand Recording

    The webinar series aims to provide updates on state and federal law, highlight trends and distinctions in state law, and each webinar will offer practical perspectives and tips for lawyers representing hospitals, public health departments, and other health system partners.

    Time (All Sessions): 90 minutes
    Sessions Format: On Demand Recording

    During the 20th century, the historic emphasis of public health on protecting populations from infectious disease and environmental threats expanded to include the prevention and reduction of chronic disease through behavior and lifestyle interventions. As we move forward into the 21st century, new challenges have emerged that have further expanded the work of those in public heath, serve to highlight the critical intersection between public health and health care, and require new and innovative strategies and legal approaches. 

    For example, as we move into the next frontier in electronic health records, and as the nation moves away from the fee-for-service model, an understanding of the state and federal legal framework for improved interoperability and data sharing become critical. The expanded deployment of telecommunications, and remote diagnostic technology, have created more options for how individuals receive healthcare, requiring competency in the laws and legal frameworks supporting the growing field of telemedicine. And, the US is currently in the midst of a devastating opioid misuse epidemic that has resulted in the enactment of a complex set of federal and state laws.

    CDC's Public Health Law Program and the American Health Lawyers Association announce a 3-part series of webinars series will explore three hot topics at the intersection of public health and health care law in the 21st century: data sharing, telemedicine, and the opioid crisis. The webinar series aims to provide updates on state and federal law, highlight trends and distinctions in state law, and each webinar will offer practical perspectives and tips for lawyers representing hospitals, public health departments, and other health system partners.
