Overview

Today, telemedicine is one of the fastest growing sectors in healthcare. Specifically, COVID-19 has enhanced and accelerated the role that telemedicine plays within our healthcare system. It is reshaping the landscape of healthcare delivery in the United States, and is being recognized as the future of global healthcare. Telehealth addresses and achieves the basic tenants of Healthcare Reform: providing the population with access to improved and convenient, high quality patient centric care, enhancing outcomes, while reducing per capita expenditures. Today, more than 70 percent of hospitals throughout the United States are engaged in telehealth programs. Studies have shown that the benefits of telehealth include significantly improved outcomes, efficient care delivery as well as reduction in mortality rates, hospitalizations, length of stay, readmissions and healthcare costs. Telehealth has greatly enhanced access to quality care in rural areas and patient satisfaction has increased due to its convenience and patient centric approach.

We have created an exciting, high level forum featuring knowledgeable leaders and executives from the nation's leading Hospitals and Health Systems who will share their perspectives, valuable insights and expertise on how to be best equipped for the rapidly evolving and exciting landscape of telehealth. This exclusive event targets senior level executives in order to maximize educational and networking opportunities.

By attending the 2022 National Telemedicine Forum, you will learn what highly regarded Hospitals and Health Systems are doing to be prepared for the challenges that lie ahead in 2022!

We look forward to greeting you in New Orleans!

Build an Integrated and Compliant Telemedicine Program that will Prepare you for Audits, is Reimbursed, and Achieves the Quadruple Aim

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is continuing telehealth’s expanded role into the future. In its final physician fee schedule for 2021, the agency added more than 60 services to the Medicare telehealth list, allowing these services to be covered.

With this in mind, the OIG’s overarching goal is to detect possible weaknesses in current processes for Medicare telehealth services provided by all types of organizations. The Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of the Inspector General announced that it will conduct a series of audits of Medicare Part B telehealth services. These audits are currently underway and give rise to two questions: what do these audits entail and what are providers doing to prepare?

This workshop will review the details of the OIG's Work Plan and assist participants in developing a personalized approach, including designing an internal audit that will focus on telemedicine billing, integrations, and activities that are enhanced through the appropriate deployment of telemedicine. Through careful analysis of your organization's structure, partnerships, and networks, you will identify key functions, people, technology, and processes. You will also gain insights on how to build an integrated and compliant Telemedicine Program that is reimbursed and achieves the Quadruple Aim.
