Hot Topics at the Intersection of Public Health and Health Care, Part II: Increasing Access to Care: Telemedicine and the Law
Time: 1:00-2:30 PM Eastern (90 minutes)
Format: Live Webinar
Breakthroughs in telemedicine and telehealth have reduced the distance between health professionals and members of the community. Today, health professionals are able to increase access to care, combat diseases, provide education, and train providers from miles away using modern remote information and communication technologies. As a result, laws and government regulations have been modified and applied in novel ways to accommodate the patient protection and quality of care concerns relating to these innovative technologies. This webinar addresses the legal limitations on telemedicine and telehealth and how health care institutions can increase access to services while remaining compliant with state, federal, and Medicare/Medicaid regulations. Speakers will also discuss how legal epidemiology is being used to study the changes in state and local laws with regard to telemedicine.
Note: No CLE offered for this course.
This webinar is presented in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
