Lacktman Comments on Approval of Telehealth Relationship Between Hospital, Clinic

04 June 2018 FierceHealthcare News
Partner Nate Lacktman was quoted in a FierceHealthcare article, “OIG Approves Telehealth Purchasing Arrangement that Would Support HIV Care,” about the Department of Health and Human Services’ approval of a hospital’s request to buy a laptop, webcam, microphone and video conferencing software for a county-run clinic to provide free HIV prevention consultations.

Lacktman said the OIG advisory aligns with a 2011 opinion in which the agency allowed a health system to provide community hospitals with free telemedicine technology as part of a telestroke arrangement, though he noted that the OIG might have felt differently if the request had involved a mail-order pharmacy that delivered medications directly to patients’ homes.
