TODAYS GUEST Dan Frier, Founding Partner with Frier & Levitt, LLC
Dan joined us to discuss how to navigate the legal issues in telemedicine that are confronted by healthcare providers. Specifically, we discuss the following with Dan:
- (2:21) For those that are listening, that may not be familiar, would you provide us with a brief history lesson on telemedicine?
- (5:19) What are the professional liability issues with telemedicine?
- (6:49) Will you tell us about the current state of legality of telemedicine and parity laws?
- (8:10) Do you think that telemedicine might provide the impetus to “blow up” the parity laws?
- (9:14) Are telemedicine companies ignoring the current telemedicine or are they just focusing on telemedicine-friendly states?
- (14:26) Given all that we talked about, is it worth it for physicians to look into adding telemedicine to their practice?
- (15:53) What’s next, what does the next 3 years look like in telemedicine?
