Pre Conference Workshops May 12, 2019

1. Technology Showcase: 9:00am – 11:00am, 12:00pm – 2:00pm, 2:00pm – 4:00pm
A hands-on experience with telemedicine equipment, peripherals used in a clinic setting, as well as devices used in direct-to-consumer applications.

To allow for maximum participation, seating is limited to 20 people per session.

2. Billing Bootcamp 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

As telehealth evolves and expands each year, so does reimbursement on a federal, state and health plan level. This workshop will give a 30 min executive overview of telehealth reimbursement to include the most recent changes from CMS, DHCS, and local health plans. Then it’s time to get to the heart of the matter – What are your specific billing questions? Do you have claims that you just cannot get approved? How about detailed telehealth scenarios that your organization would like to try, but you aren’t sure if you can be reimbursed for them? We’ll spend our remaining time together figuring out how to get your organization paid! Please email any in depth questions in advance of this workshop to [email protected]

To allow for maximum participation, seating is limited to 25 people. A second session may be added depending on demand.

3. “BYOG – Bring Your Own Grant Workshop” 2:00 – 4:00 pm

Join Dana Satterwhite, Grant Consultant for Learn Design Apply, Inc. and come prepared to “workshop” your personal grant application. Bring a grant that you previously submitted that was not funded or bring a grant that you are currently working on for a future submission. If you don’t have a previously submitted grant or a grant in progress, bring a grant idea or potential grant project that you would like specific guidance with and recommendations for developing into a strong, competitive application.

There are myriad federal, state and foundation grants specifically targeted at rural, disenfranchised, high poverty and/or underserved areas. Unfortunately, the organizations most deserving of these grants are those with the least resources to obtain the funding they so desperately need. Instead, larger institutions with dedicated grant teams, or the budgets necessary to pay for grant support, are awarded these grants, year after year. This try-and-fail formula frequently dissuades many first-time applicants from ever attempting to apply a second time.

Learn Design Apply, Inc. (LDA) is a grants consulting and management company with 50+ years combined experience in grant management and writing, program development and relationship management with underserved communities, technology firms and healthcare providers in the USA.

2019 National Telehealth Research Symposium

By |


The Society for Education and the Advancement of Research in Connected Health (SEARCH) started in 2016 as a small team of academics, researchers, and clinical professionals who met to discuss the need for:

  1. A society of connected health researchers—free from commercial bias—to prove (or disprove) the benefits of telemedicine
  2. An annual meeting of open discussion revolving around telemedicine research, findings, and national priorities with the goal to share the findings and foster research collaborations among researchers and organizations who wish to define and develop the field of connected health research.
    • SEARCH2016 – Nashville, Tennessee
    • SEARCH2017 Spring – Leesburg, Virginia
    • SEARCH2017 Fall – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
    • SEARCH2018 – San Diego, California

SEARCH has developed into a society with a goal to promote connected health programs through the use of evidenced-based research.
