The COVID-19 crisis has forced hospitals to create new ways to deliver patient care, especially in the ED. The burgeoning telemedicine industry has expanded significantly as hospitals and physicians have used telemedicine to carry out social distancing and increase access to care. Government and private regulations have been rewritten completely to support this expansion. This rapid evolution has helped to keep patients and providers safe while preserving the supply of personal protective equipment. Attend this webinar to learn the latest telemedicine adaptations in the ED and understand how to ensure compliant reimbursement and best practices to ensure your hospital’s success and survival.
