Following is an excerpt:

Bloomberg Law and Epstein Becker Green (EBG) announced today the publication of a new edition of Navigating the Telehealth Landscape: Legal and Regulatory Issues, a portfolio that focuses on the growing use of telehealth technologies and services and analyzes the federal and state issues impacting the utilization of telehealth services.  The Portfolio, which is available to Bloomberg Law subscribers, is written by EBG’s Amy F. Lerman and Charles C. Dunham, IV. …

“According to a 2016 study, an estimated 61 percent of health care institutions currently use some form of telehealth technology, and between 40 and 50 percent of all hospitals in the U.S. now utilize some form of telehealth technology in their provision of health care services.  So telemedicine is certainly here to stay,” said Ms. Lerman.  “And that’s why it is important that health care providers, physicians, employers, and other users are up to speed on the various complex issues that this exciting technology presents.”

“There have been movements at the state and federal level with regard to telehealth advancement.  So the future, while somewhat unknown, is promising,” said Mr. Dunham.  “We were pleased to partner with Bloomberg BNA on this project, and we hope that those who read it find the Portfolio insightful and thought provoking.”
