The seminar will consist of three sessions held on April 25, 2019, 12:00-4:00 pm ET.

The value of telemedicine is projected to more than double, from $14.3 billion in 2014 to $36.2 billion in 2020. Given telemedicine’s potential to optimize patient access, reduce the cost of care, and improve patient outcomes and satisfaction, it’s clear why more than half of all U.S. hospitals now use some form of telemedicine. But because regulations and requirements for telemedicine reimbursement vary among federal, state and private payers, many healthcare organizations are not sure how to take advantage of the financial benefits. This seminar will provide an in-depth review of telemedicine billing, reimbursement and financial management strategies. 
 
As an additional benefit, we’re offering complimentary 1-to-1 appointments with the presenters. A link to sign up for a 20-minute consultation will be available immediately before the program begins. All registrants will receive an email notification as soon as it’s online.
