Telehealth Conversation
Empowering Patient-Centered Care
through Digital Health Innovations

In this presentation, I will explore the transformative role of digital health innovations in reshaping patient-centered care paradigms. From telehealth advancements to personalized interventions, I will explore how technology is transforming healthcare delivery, enhancing patient engagement, and improving better outcomes.

Drawing from real-world case studies and industry trends, attendees will gain practical perspective and actionable strategies to integrate innovative digital solutions into their telehealth practices, ultimately elevating the patient experience and improving overall healthcare delivery.

12:00 PM Eastern

Telehealth Policy
The Case for Payment Parity

The telehealth flexibilities that authorized Medicare to reimburse for telehealth at the same rate as in-person care will expire at the end of 2024.

This deadline has incited multiple hearings on Capitol Hill as well as letters to the Secretary of Health and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid from diverse entities ranging from the national membership organizations representing health care professionals to members of Congress.

Several bills have been put forward to make the telehealth flexibilities authorized under the pandemic permanent. Most of these bills specifically call out the need for payment parity. This decision is more than just a policy one, however, as its impact will affect the health care landscape.

Telehealth has transformed the health care delivery system introducing new opportunities to provide care for underserved populations while increasing accessibility and convenience for patients. Telehealth has also revolutionized how health care is provided with many patients and providers advocating for a hybrid model of telehealth and in-person care based on the situation.

Decisions regarding payment parity will not only impact heath care access but also reveal insights into the government’s acceptance and support for an evolving digital health landscape.

Telehealth Trends, Techniques, and Insights
Marketing Your Telehealth Service Without Ending Up in Court

“Build it and they will come” typically does not work, so most telehealth providers turn to marketing to make their services known to the public. Yet many healthcare providers, and sometimes platforms, make too many promises in their marketing efforts. They could avoid needless risk (including litigation) if they would rein in their enthusiasm a bit.

Joe McMenamin, MD, JD has worked in digital health law for almost 30 years and will share his well-honed insights on how to promote innovative services while staying out of court. With illustrative stories and examples how plaintiffs’ counsel use marketing to drum up claims against the Good Guys, this session is a must for anyone practicing or supporting telehealth services.
