In order to provide effective telehealth services (including New York’s distinct categories of “telemedicine,” “telemental health” and various forms of “telepractice”), health care providers must have the ability to provide quality care and also be able to implement additional protocols related to cybersecurity, privacy and reimbursement. There are also unique challenges that can arise in areas of credentialing, licensure/scope of practice and patient consent.
Who We Serve
Our health care practice group works closely with clients who provide medical and/or behavioral health care services through electronic communications. We have assisted many clients (including hospitals, medical groups, psychological practices and OPWDD providers) in establishing and expanding telehealth services and advise them on the ever-changing state and federal laws that govern issues of security/privacy, insurance coverage and reimbursement under Medicaid and Medicare.
