Show, Don't Tell, Telehealth Benefits

Telehealth is gaining acceptance and momentum among providers and patients. It's even got friends in Washington working to change regulations that govern technology to treat patients remotely. Marketing needs to keep pace.

I share the telehealth vision described in quote "Our vision is that any patient anywhere in the world, whether it's 50 miles north of here or 5,000 miles away can contact Miami Children's Hospital and get the correct specialist on the case so that the child receives the right care as soon as possible,". As I understand the billing rules surrounding telehealth services, the provider of care must be clinically licensed in the state where the patient is sitting at the time care is provided. If this is indeed the case, how are you effectively and efficiently able to staff clinicians to meet the needs of patients requiring care on an urgent basis. Thank you in advance for sharing your insight. sandy
