Location

  • Sands Expo Center
    Las Vegas, NV
Foley Partner Nathaniel Lacktman, Chair of the firm’s Telemedicine Industry Team and Co-Chair of the firm’s Digital Health Group, will be a speaker at the HIMSS 2018 conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. His presentation is titled, “Behavioral Health: A Launchpad to Enterprise Telehealth.”

Mr. Lacktman will be joined by Sarah Sossong, Director of TeleHealth, Massachusetts General Hospital and together they will walk through how Mass General Hospital (MGH) has successfully implemented and continues to grow their telehealth program - beginning with building a strategy through to growing the patient population. Due to the ever changing regulatory telemedicine landscape, a special focus will be placed on the necessary legal considerations when developing a program.

Presenters will also touch on a recent expansion of the program to reach Island residents and a tourist population off the coast of Massachusetts as well as the new NQF guidelines (expected to be finalized in the fall of 2017) and how MGH has embarked on implementing the new measurements.
