This webinar on Telemedicine Programs will focus on critical issues to be addressed before joint program connecting remote and central locations is planned and implemented. New technical and regulatory developments like that of FDA on Medical Data Device Systems (MDDS) and its implications on the telehealth community will be discussed.

Why Should You Attend :

This presentation will review the forces and the barriers to main stream deployment of TeleHealth systems. We will address licensure, compliance, accessibility, quality of data, data ownership, privacy, integration, contingency plan, legal and financial issues.

Through proper planning progress towards the deployment of successful solutions for services such as: extend specialty care, improve quality care, better management of chronic diseases, cost containment, support home care, education/promotion for healthy behavior, and serving needs of remote communities can be made.

This webinar will help you understand system integration options and how to select the best fit for your organization while achieving compliance with requirements for performance by developers, integrators, users and payers.

Areas Covered in the Seminar:

This presentation will cover:

  • Telehealth components and the contribution of each to the overall quality of service.
  • End-to-end telehealth connectivity identifying various stake holders responsibility.
  • Basic technical terms and their importance for achieving regulatory, licensure and clinical compliance.
  • Telehealth systems and services come in different flavors and we will analyze and contrast few of them.
  • Impact of mobility tools (smart phone, tablet, smart pump, robotics) on administrative issues like privacy and accountability.
  • Legal considerations as they relate to remote telemedical programs.
  • Literature review of telehealth program impact on clinical outcomes.

Who Will Benefit:

This webinar will provide valuable assistance to all who plan to deploy, integrate or are users of distant telehealth services. That would benefit most would be:

  • Hospital administrators
  • Hospital IT directors
  • Nursing managers
  • Telemedicine Coordinators
  • Clinical engineers/BMETs
  • Clinical service/program development Managers
  • Quality Assurance/Risk Managers
  • Credentialing officers

Topic Background:

Telehealth system, and its subspecialty - Telemedicine, have progressed from complex collection of innovative and unique technological elements to the systematic integration of health-related services delivered through commercial off-the-shelf components. They progressed from being challenged by clinicians for not having sufficient features' quality to being deployed for more services than ever before as major clinical information communication tool. Tools that use scheduled real-time appointment as well as on-demand and store-and-forward solution. These solutions advanced faster than the regulations that control them. Credentialing care providers and cross state licensure are barriers,  from the pre-internet era, to the practice of telehealth. Yet, throughout most of the last two decades, Telehealth was mentioned in the public mostly when it made newsworthy events.  Events like those  about the diagnosis of trauma conditions of research scientist while at the South Pole base station without access to medical assistance, or the US Army doctors that remotely treated soldiers under combat conditions in Afghanistan, and the American urologist that performed surgical procedure on a patient across the ocean, in France. In such conditions, the issues of safe, robustness and compliant program are left out. As provider, however, you have responsibility to assure that these issues are well integrated within your overall program.

Recent disasters like those that devastated Haiti, Chile, New Zealand, and Japan demonstrated that TeleHealth systems have became to be part of the armament of solutions that can reliably and under extreme conditions extend care where otherwise it will not be available. In addition, the recent adoption of IT and mobile telecommunication tools by regional authorities and healthcare providers around the world helped built large remote telemedicine systems. Both of these issues, disaster and mobility, provide critical lessons learned and guide the initial search for best practice guidelines in telehealth and their role in promoting communities' health.
