The Intersection of Public Health and Healthcare in the 21st Century: Hot Topics and Practice Tips, Part III

Includes a Live Event on 10/16/2018 at 2:00 PM (EDT)

Time: 2:00-3:30 PM Eastern (90 minutes)
Format: Live Webinar
Topic:  Telemedicine and the Law: Where are We Now?     

This webinar will highlight the rapid growth of telemedicine over the past few years, in response to strides in technology, growing commercial insurance coverage, and a continued short supply of physicians. The heart of this program will be an exploration of the growth of federal and state laws related to telemedicine. Speakers will provide an overview of the trajectory of telemedicine-related laws, highlight the existing legal framework, and provide perspectives on what may be on the legislative front. 

Panelists will also highlight innovative ways to structure telemedicine service arrangements to ensure compliance with traditional state and local health care laws. 

Note: No CLE offered for this course.
