Telehealth is being employed throughout the country to expand access to quality affordable health care, yet California and Medicare policies have created unnecessary barriers to widespread adoption. This presentation will provide basic knowledge on the following:
• The definition of “connected health technology” and telehealth specifically;
• An overview of the ways in which technology is creatively being used in the delivery of health care currently, and its potential for system transformation;
• Major national and state policy issues, including state Medicaid, Medicare and private payer reimbursement, professional practice standards and cross-state licensing;
• Other challenges and barriers related to telehealth, specifically the management of health information such as HIPAA, privacy and security and other legal concerns.
