Why Should You Attend:

With all of the recent activity in the area of telemedicine are you sure your hospital is compliant with the regulatory standards? Are you familiar with the federal regulation on telemedicine along with the CMS hospital CoP interpretive guidelines? CMS has been issuing quarterly reports of the number of hospital deficiencies and this program will discuss the most problematic standards in the telemedicine interpretive guidelines. The most problematic standard is the failure of the hospital to have the required section in the contract for telemedicine services.
