Around 50 participants heard from industry experts shared the latest advancements in telehealth in the emergency department (ED) and presented a glimpse of what to expect in the future.
On the first day, Dr. Jenn Raley gave an informative introduction with tips for setting up a telehealth program in an ED practice, including a live demo. Dr. Ethan Booker, David McKenzie, and Juli Forde the discussed the latest on models for ED reimbursement in telehealth. Dr. Judd Hollander, who streamed live into the workshop from Philadelphia, and Becky Sanders presented on the barriers, resources, and models available in rural and urban ED settings.
On the second day, Melissa Goldman gave a thorough review of the legal ramifications of properly licensing and credentialing a telehealth ED program, which included malpractice and liability examples from various states. Dr. Edward Barthell gave a lecture on creative telehealth models for different ED healthcare delivery systems. Finally, Dr. Alex Mohseni gave a thought-provoking presentation on what the future of telehealth would entail for emergency medicine and society.
EDPMA would like to offer special thanks to Drs. Dave Ernst and Jason Alder, along with Ed Gaines, Mark Owen, and Paul Hudson, for their time and effort in planning this workshop. The final agenda can be found here.
