With healthcare consumerism on the rise, more and more practices are adopting telehealth experiences as they look to bring immediacy to the care experience. In fact, according to a recent survey, 76% of providers surveyed said they offer or plan to offer telehealth services. Even the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has recognized telehealth’s grasp on patient care as they recently finalized a rule that will change the way patients and physicians interact, enabling even more widespread use of these alternative communication options.
As laws, regulations, and practice standards concerning telehealth continue to evolve, join Rhinogram for a timely webinar tomorrow, January 30 as guest speaker Emily H. Wein, Healthcare Regulatory Attorney for Foley & Lardner LLP, discusses 19 Telehealth Trends for 2019.
