Telemedicine & Telehealth
Telemedicine & Telehealth Law
One of the universally accepted beliefs about healthcare in our country is that it should cost less than it currently does. Hence the Triple Aim objectives of the federal government as it navigates to incentivize the delivery of care that is demonstrably high quality at a reduced price. This is one of the greatest drivers behind rapidly evolving business sectors like healthcare technology (e.g. robotics) and IT (e.g. EMR). Beyond that, telehealth is emerging at an increasingly rapid pace as the nexus between medical care, technology and cost savings.
Telemedicine law is driven at the federal level, but mostly at the state level, since the developing areas of law are more dynamic at the state level than they are at the federal level. For instance, the Florida Telehealth Advisory Council is recommending that telehealth capabilities be expanded and that insurance reimbursement for telehealth services be compelled. If the Council’s recommendations are adopted by Florida legislators, it will be the most forward moving telehealth law in the country. Our team is committed to advising teleheatlh providers and related vendors of all kinds, both within Florida and around the country.
