Foley Of Counsel Alan Einhorn will present a webinar in conjunction with Reach Health on April 19, 2018 at 2:00 pm EDT. His presentation is titled, “Telemedicine Credentialing by Proxy - What Hospitals and Telehealth Providers Need to Know.”

Telemedicine services continue to rapidly expand across the country, allowing providers to deliver remote care and better allocate the staffing and availability of specialist physicians. However, despite the uptick in hospital-based telemedicine services, most medical staff offices still use the traditional “primary source verification” process to credential physicians.

The traditional credentialing process is far more time-consuming and costly than credentialing by proxy, and hospitals (particularly originating site hospitals that receive/purchase telemedicine services) should consider how to take advantage of the streamlined credentialing by proxy process authorized by both CMS and the Joint Commission.

The presentation will offer:

  • An overview of the CMS and Joint Commission standards and key contractual requirements
  • An understanding of the important questions, key steps, and common pitfalls faced when implementing credentialing by proxy
  • Drafting tips that will help you streamline your credentialing process for telemedicine providers and avoid unintended consequences
  • Lessons learned from the trenches
