The Shifting Legal Landscape of Telehealth
Health care delivery models are rapidly changing in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to State of Emergency declarations, providers that have historically focused on in-person care have been forced to explore the world of telehealth. Some have made this change quickly while others are still evaluating the implications telehealth will have on their practice. As providers, patients, and insurers continue to become comfortable with care delivered in this format, there is a debate about whether changes made to facilitate more expansive delivery of remote care will become permanent. Whether you are new to telehealth or an experienced telehealth provider, the reality is that the regulatory environment has dramatically shifted, raising many questions about what the future holds.
Join Lathrop GPM Health Law attorneys Jesse Berg and Randal Schultz for a webinar discussion of key legal issues related to the provision of telehealth during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
The program will address the following topics in the context of telehealth:
Licensure and scope of practice
Fraud and abuse
Privacy and security
Telehealth business models
Predictions for the future and other developments
