Course Description

What are some of the Privacy, Security & Compliance issues associated with the rapid increased use of Telehealth?

Privacy and Security Issues
The expanded use of telehealth and other virtual care services during the COVID-19 pandemic protected both patients and providers. However, the rapid increased reliance on telehealth is not without data privacy and security considerations. This session will highlight those areas that organizations should evaluate including:

  • Business Associate Agreements/Data Use Agreements
  • Access/Disclosures
  • Security Assessments/Technology Waivers
  • Telehealth policies and training materials for faculty and staff

Compliance Issues
The COVID-19 pandemic has created new and emerging telehealth compliance issues: relaxing standards in certain areas while increasing the need for greater compliance planning and implementation in others. During this session we will highlight some of the compliance issues associated with the continued use of telehealth including:

  • Practicing telemedicine across state lines
  • Documentation in the EMR
  • Credentialing and Privileging
  • Informed consent
