Course Curriculum
Telehealth is one of the most significant trends in healthcare, serving as a way to ensure that people can get care when and where they need it. It is dramatically changing the delivery of healthcare and has the potential to be disruptive and transformative. Representatives at hospitals and health systems are eager to hear the latest news and want to learn how leaders in the field are breaking new ground. There is a definite need for innovation at health systems to advance the practice of telemedicine.

In this webinar, we begin with the basics and move to practical applications for implementing telehealth services, including how the technology of telemedicine can impact a clinical setting. We want to help your organization avoid the potholes that may be disruptive as you move forward in the adoption of telehealth programs.

  2. Explain regulatory and compliance matters that are relevant when dealing with telehealth, including telehealth-related laws, regulations, and state Medicaid policies.
  3. Identify areas within their own organizations that can benefit from the implementation of telehealth services, focusing on the clinical, technical, operational and systemic aspects of establishing a telehealth program, and determining an ROI on implementing such a program.
