Webinar Recording: Telehealth Regulation & Enforcement: 2021 Year in Review & 2022 Outlook

Over the past year, the demand for health care via telehealth has continued to skyrocket as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the public’s increased comfort with obtaining health care goods and services virtually.

While this increased demand has brought incredible ingenuity in the delivery of care by both brick-and-mortar providers and telehealth companies, it has also ushered in increased government scrutiny. Compliance is becoming increasingly complex as waivers and flexibilities instituted due to the Covid-19 pandemic have made an already cumbersome regulatory environment even harder to navigate.

Join Ellen Janos, Karen Lovitch, Kate Stewart and Alex Hecht as they demystify the current status of laws and regulations, untangle the web of legislation before Congress related to the expansion of telehealth services, discuss recent enforcement activity, and look ahead to trends we see on the horizon.
