TeleMedicine PanelLed by MD MGMA, in collaboration with the CT MGMA, DE MGMA, MA/RI MGMA, NY MGMA, PA MGMA, and VA MGMA.
As healthcare continues to embrace the digital age, more and more clinicians are using telemedicine as a tactic to provide care in an innovative way. In this session our panel of telemedicine experts will show how to successfully implement virtual visits by focusing how to identify patients that would best benefit from telemedicine, understand billing and documentation requirements, and acquire strategies for how clinicians can adjust their style of practice for delivering care virtually rather than in person.
