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 ISMIE’s Annual Risk Management Symposium in Chicago on November 2, 2018. His presentation is titled, “Telemedicine: Legal and Practical Considerations for Physicians.”

Advances in health technology can promote good patient care, but the laws and rules when delivering care via telemedicine, particularly across state lines, can be daunting. Physicians should endeavor to build a system that makes good business sense and adheres to health care industry regulatory requirements, while also allowing them to uphold the standard of care. This session will discuss important considerations that physicians should take into account when practicing via telemedicine.

Mr. Lacktman’s presentation will target the following learning objectives:

  • Summarize the current regulatory landscape as it relates to telemedicine
  • Identify key considerations when using telemedicine, including licensure, medical practice standards, prescribing and reimbursement
  • Describe the medical professional liability risks that may arise when delivering care via telemedicine

ISMIE’s Annual Risk Management Symposium – a one-day conference in the Chicagoland area – will once again bring together seven extraordinary speakers to offer one-of-a-kind insights and practical advice from the forefront of patient safety and risk management. This year's topics will include telemedicine, genetic testing, precision medicine, polypharmacy, diagnostic accuracy, burnout and resilience, and more.
