This webinar is an overview of technological, legal, regulatory and liability aspects of telehealth in the context of the COVID-19 emergency. COVID-19 has compelled providers in every specialty and setting to investigate the potential of telehealth for their practices. This program, updated with new regulatory information specific to the COVID-19 emergency declaration, is a general introduction to telehealth. It reviews technical, legal, ethical, regulatory and liability implications. It discusses platforms, consent, standards of care, security and documentation requirements and gives some approaches to evolving best practices. It touches on payment but cannot provide specific coding and reimbursement guidance in that area.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
•    Become familiar with telehealth-use cases, applications and platforms.
•    Understand professional liability risks and insurance coverage issues arising from non-face-to-face
      medicine.
•    Understand the legal and regulatory framework for the practice of telehealth under the new
      COVID-19 rules.

FACULTY:
Michael Victoroff, MD is a risk management consultant for health information technology at COPIC, where he specializes in liability and safety aspects of hospital information technology.
