At this point in the ever-evolving monolith we call the healthcare industry, everyone has at least heard of telehealth/telemedicine, and how it’s poised to change and revolutionize the way healthcare is delivered across the country.  Some facilities and providers have dipped their toe into the waters, while others are already actively engaging in telehealth/telemedicine and doing it very well.  However, for many others, the idea of telehealth/telemedicine sounds great, but grappling with all of the issues, regulatory and legal, seems daunting.  With that in mind, our friends at Cline Williams Law Firm will provide us with an overview of the principle legal issues that must be considered with respect to telehealth/telemedicine.  Everything from patient interaction, to informed consent, to HIPAA Privacy and Security, to everything in between.  Please join us and Cline Williams attorneys, Jason Yungtum and Jill Jensen, for what will be an informative and educational session (and perhaps a few laughs).
