Description

As telemedicine continues to change how providers interact with their patients, organizations are expanding already existing telehealth programs or are investing in telehealth technology. Introducing Behavioral Health services via telemedicine can have an immediate impact on a wellbeing of the patient population. Focusing on one service line, Behavioral Health, this session will walk through how Mass General Hospital (MGH) has successfully implemented and continues to grow their telehealth program - beginning with building a strategy through to growing the patient population. Due to the ever-changing regulatory telemedicine landscape, a special focus will be placed on the necessary legal considerations when developing a program. Presenters will also touch on a recent expansion of the program to reach island residents and a tourist population off the coast of Massachusetts as well as the new NQF guidelines and how MGH has embarked on implementing the new measures.
