Richard discusses the practical applications of telehealth and how it differs from more traditional physician visits. As with many new services, new questions arise on how telemedicine impacts healthcare services and reimbursement. Telehealth requires a significant investment in technology and equipment that decision-makers should consider when determining if telehealth is a good fit for their healthcare organization.
Richard recently attended the CTeL Summit in Washington, D.C. and provides a brief update of policies to follow throughout 2019.
