The use of telemedicine as a vital adjunct to providing care, treatment, and service is growing every day. Advances in technology now enable a patient¹s care to be directed by physicians hundreds of mile away. As the use of telemedicine grows, so does the interest of CMS and its accrediting organizations.

In this webcast, CIHQ CEO Rick Curtis, RN, MS, HACP, will educate attendees on the basics of telemedicine, key CMS requirements governing the use of telemedicine, and common compliance issues among hospitals. Curtis will also be available to answer questions in a live Q&A.

“Interest from patients and healthcare providers in the benefits of telemedicine continues to rise,” said Rick Pleczko, President and CEO of symplr. “Rick Curtis will give an overview on what to expect from telemedicine and how to manage this new source of patient care from a compliance perspective.”
