Best Practices for COVID-19: Telemedicine

LISTEN LIVE NOW!
Tuesday, April 7, 2020 at 11:00 AM CDT (12:00 PM EDT)
1.5 hour with live Q&A
 
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic there has been a sharp rise in the use of telehealth to deliver medical services and this has led to controversies regarding the scope of use beyond traditional health care delivery. There is wide variation in how well occupational health care providers and clinics are prepared to appropriately use telemedicine.  
 
This webinar will discuss best practices for telemedicine, recent changes in both telehealth rules and in the pattern of use, with a focus on occupational medicine impacts. A real-life example of telehealth use in an occupational health setting will be presented, including problems encountered and suggested solutions. This session will be moderated with opportunity for Q&A.
 
This webinar is brought to you with support from the Western Occupational & Environmental Medical Association.
