Telehealth/Telemedicine

Overview

Telehealth/Telemedicine is one of the most exciting trends in healthcare because it
offers the unprecedented opportunity to expand access to high quality healthcare
services for millions of people while at the same time reducing the cost of care.
However, to realize the incredible potential presented by telehealth/telemedicine technology, there are myriad regulatory hurdles to navigate.

Wortham LLP can help guide your organization through the remote/synchronous/asynchronous care labyrinth, with experience in drafting and negotiating telehealth services agreements, analysis and compliance advice for state and Federal scope of practice and prescribing regulations, and practical planning to mitigate privacy and security risks.

Let us leverage this experience to help your organization build and refine competitive, effective telehealth/telemedicine solutions.
