Telehealth: Key Adoption Factors, Barriers and Opportunities
McDonald Hopkins attorney, Rick Hindmand, will be moderating the panel discussion at the First Illinois HFMA Fall Summit 2019 in Oakbrook Terrace, IL.
Telehealth, including modalities such as virtual encounters through live video, mobile health, remote patient monitoring (RPM), and store-and-forward technology, offers great promise to provide expanded access to better coordinated, more efficient and more effective healthcare. Expanded uses of telehealth, however, also face substantial challenges, including reimbursement restrictions and other barriers. Our panel will provide an overview of telehealth modalities, uses, trends, projections and drivers, as well as reimbursement restrictions that provide barriers to telehealth and recent reimbursement policy changes making telehealth more attractive. Our speakers will discuss how health systems are using telehealth to provide services such as RPM, teleICU, telebehavioral health, teleneurology, telestroke, chronic care management, transitional care management, as well as return on investment (ROI) considerations.
