2020 Telemedicine Webinar Series, Part I: Telemedicine Legal and Regulatory Issues

Wednesday, January 22, 2020

AHLA is proud to offer its sixth annual four-part Telemedicine Webinar Series. This first session will focus on telemedicine legal and regulatory issues, and is appropriate for both beginners and intermediate-level attorneys seeking an update to the ever-evolving telemedicine legal landscape. Health care providers and institutions alike have seen a rapid proliferation of telemedicine services, and the market forecast only continues to grow. Participants will engage with lawyers who successfully help clients build sustainable, compliant telemedicine service offerings. The panelists will discuss the overall legal and regulatory landscape for telemedicine, focusing on primary areas of licensure, accepted telemedicine modalities to create a valid doctor-patient relationship, malpractice considerations, telemedicine practice standards, prescribing drugs and controlled substances, informed consent, and multistate services. Each subsequent webinar in the series will provide a deeper dive into a specific functional or operational area within telemedicine.
