Foley Partner Nathaniel Lacktman, member of the Health Care Industry Team and telemedicine and mHealth practices, will be speaking at the mHealth + Telehealth World Congress 2015 in Boston on July 20-22, 2015. His panel presentation is titled, “Explore Reimbursement and Financing of Connected Health Programs."

The rapid growth of Telehealth technologies and arrangements offers enormous benefits to the health care community, along with the opportunities for improved patient care, outcomes, satisfaction, and efficiency. It similarly offers great promise for new provider business models and arrangements. When designing a Telehealth service offering, providers and their leadership should explore the various financial opportunities and compensation models used in this area. These arrangements must be not only financially viable, but structured to comply with federal and state compliance laws and regulations.

Attendees at the session will:

  • Hear recent changes in policy and reimbursement for connected health programs
  • Learn financial models and compensation methodologies for Telehealth contracts
  • Understand new reimbursement opportunities under state, federal, and commercial payers
  • Develop tools for Telehealth reimbursement policy advocacy

Mr. Lacktman will moderate an expert panel including:

  • Anuj Goel, JD, MPH, Vice President of Legal and Regulatory Affairs for the Massachusetts Hospital Association
  • Karen Rheuban, MD, Medical Director, Office of Telemedicine, University of Virginia
  • Sarah Sossong, MPH, FACHE, Director of Telehealth, Massachusetts General Hospital

The mHealth + Telehealth World 2015 brings together hospitals, health systems, health plans, and innovators to share successes and failures of existing programs and discuss the future of connected health.
