We are excited about this year’s agenda, as it includes a wide range of current and relevant topics such as: hands on experience with telemedicine equipment and peripheral devices; the latest in technology trends; Federal and State policy updates; as well as mHealth, school based telehealth, and direct to consumer strategies! We will also take a dive into building and negotiating telehealth contracts from a legal perspective, finding and vetting the perfect telehealth provider, project ECHO for Pain Management and Opioid addiction treatment, mapping and designing telehealth workflows, the power of data collection and analysis, patient and provider engagement techniques, recent developments in telehealth and EHR integration, and a spotlight on health plan engagement in telehealth.
We will be offering a pre-conference workshop this year. The workshop will feature the National Telehealth Resource Center for Technology’s popular Telehealth Technology Showcase, where participants, in a hands-on environment, will learn about various telehealth technologies, software, and peripheral equipment.
The conference will be attended by telehealth clinician champions, coordinators, C-suite leadership, and IT professionals. Over the past several years we have maintained an average of 300 attendees, and anticipate the 2018 event will reach if not exceed this level of participation.
Departing from a more traditional plenary session format, the 2018 MATRC Telehealth Summit will draw you into lively discussion and challenge your current understanding of hot topics such as privacy, security, HIPAA, standards of care, quality of care, informed consent, and licensure as they relate to telehealth. Using fictional, but realistic situations presented in a “mock-trial” format, you will find yourself both entertained and provoked to think differently about emerging risks, risk management and policy in this age where technology coupled with human innovation are creating new models of care delivery. Will there be winners and losers? Here is your chance to be the judge, jury and/or executioner.
