René Quashie, Senior Counsel, will present "Telehealth: The Legal and Regulatory Obstacles," a FocusOn teleconference hosted by the ERISA Industry Committee (ERIC).

It is estimated that the number of patients using telehealth services will increase from 250,000 patients today to over 3 million by 2018. Similarly, revenue derived from telehealth is expected to grow from $230 million in 2013 to $1.9 billion in 2018. As is all too often the case, however, serious legal and regulatory issues remain and will be a barrier to the wider adoption of telehealth. 

This FocusOn call will explore these legal and regulatory issues -- including those involving licensure, scope of practice, online prescribing, privacy and security -- and also review the many policy initiatives underway to address them.
