Telemedicine is a popular model for delivering care because of its accessibility and convenience for patients. With its growing popularity, telemedicine has become part of the standard consultation process, meaning providers now have more compliance standards to abide by. During this session, our expert will guide attendees through the telemedicine interpretive guidelines and show how easy it can be to maintain compliance.
This program will cover the federal regulations on telemedicine, CMS interpretive guidelines on telemedicine standards, and TJC’s crosswalk that follows telemedicine standards. Our expert will discuss the most problematic standards in the telemedicine interpretive guidelines and provide recommendations that boards, medical staff and hospitals must follow to ensure compliance with the CMS and TJC standards.
