On Saturday, September 17, 2016, and Sunday, September 18, 2016, CLEAR and the Citizen Advocacy Center (CAC) co-sponsored a national conference with the theme "Modernizing the Regulatory Framework for Telehealth." You can download the PowerPoint Presentations, and you can download the Program Announcement and Agenda.
This conference was CAC's 2016 annual meeting, and brought stakeholders together to identify and discuss ways in which the health professional regulatory system can facilitate the use of telehealth technologies and maximize the benefits to the public, consistent with safe, quality, affordable care. Many healthcare professionals and their respective boards are taking steps to enable the appropriate, safe use of telehealth technologies.
The conference addressed such topics as:
* How do patients feel about telehealth?
* What are the main regulatory hurdles that need to be overcome?
* How can telehealth outcomes be evaluated?
