Connecting with Kids: Opportunities and Challenges in Pediatric Virtual Care Programs - On Demand Recording

Recorded On: 05/08/2018

Time: 90 minutes
Session Format: On Demand Recording

Telehealth has wide-ranging applications for use in the pediatric population for different medical specialties and subspecialties (e.g., primary care, pediatric dermatology and pediatric oncology), professional disciplines (e.g., medicine and behavioral health) and locations of care (e.g., a patient's home, a pediatrician's office or even a school). This presentation will provide an overview of the development and maintenance of pediatric-focused telehealth programs. Speakers will address legal and operational challenges for providers related to reimbursement, informed consent, privacy, patient care standards and more.  The presentation will also include real-world case studies detailing specific hospital-based programs. 

Level of Difficulty:  Intermediate 

Intermediate-level programs generally offer focused discussions regarding common legal issues pertaining to the program topic. Intermediate programs include legal updates and changes in the law. Speakers will assume the audience has a working knowledge of this specialty of health law, and there will be limited review of the fundamentals. This program is designed to provide a targeted, comprehensive analysis of the subject matter for those practicing law in this specialty for three to seven years and/or those whose practice is periodically focused in the covered subject area.
