Hot Topics at the Intersection of Public Health and Health Care, All Parts - On Demand Recording

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

In recent years, federal agencies, state legislatures, consumer advocates, and health care providers have shown increasing interest in providing satisfactory patient care in unique settings, such as disaster situations and rural communities.  From evacuating patients in a natural disaster to video conferencing with doctors in remote areas, these settings come with particular challenges that must be addressed in creative ways by public health, health care, and legal professionals.

This webinar series, co-sponsored by the Center for Disease Control's Public Health Law Program and the American Health Lawyers Association, offers an overview of current trends in laws regarding emergency management, telemedicine, and rural health and how they affect patient care, employee training, and innovation in health care organizations and public health programs.

  • Hot Topics at the Intersection of Public Health and Health Care, Part II: Increasing Access to Care: Telemedicine and the Law - On Demand Recording

    Recorded On: 10/17/2017

    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.
