Telemedicine and mHealth


Overview

The adoption of new technologies to communicate and to exchange health care information has allowed health care providers to better serve their existing patients and expand their services into new markets by maintaining a "virtual" presence or by providing health care services remotely through telemedicine. Providers and patients want to have the same access to medical information (and to each other) as they have with their financial and commercial information using smartphones, tablets, and other portable technology.  However, the combination of these technologies and medicine raises a host of privacy and regulatory considerations. Our team works with providers to assess their technology options and develop a plan for implementing telemedicine and mobile health technology in a manner that makes sense for the provider and that complies with applicable regulations and guidance. We also provide advice and counsel regarding reimbursement, privacy, and security considerations related to the use of telemedicine and mobile health devices.

Health care providers must be proactive when it comes to the interface of health care and technology.  Let our team assist you in evaluating and addressing the unique issues raised by the use of telemedicine and mobile health devices.
