25 May 2017 mHealthIntelligence News
Partner Nate Lacktman was quoted in an mHealthIntelligence article, “NETRC Conference: Telehealth on the Path to Mainstream Adoption,” wherein health and legal professionals discuss the possibilities telemedicine would bring to the direct-to-consumer market.

The article discusses the advantages telemedicine has over the traditional doctor’s visit, specifically the availability of wireless diagnostic tools that are advancing to the point where a doctor can virtually examine and test his or her patients.

Lacktman said that health care providers are currently weighing the “medical economics” of telemedicine, explaining that since federal reimbursement for these services is a lengthy process, providers are pursuing new revenue opportunities.
