Getting Started in Telemedicine Series

Telehealth services are expanding rapidly during the COVID-19 crisis. In partnership with Bay Area medical associations, the ACCMA teamed up with experts to develop a comprehensive webinar series to help physicians swiftly ramp up their telemedicine capabilities, from technology to practice implementation to coding. Experts discuss choosing a telemedicine platform; compliance; privacy and security considerations; billing and payment; policies, procedures, and workflow; informing your patients; and malpractice. Physicians who have experience practicing telemedicine share their practical reflections.

These on-demand webinars are available for FREE to all physicians. We would like to thank VSee, Global Health Impact Network, and the InnovatorMD Conference for donating their expertise and technical support to make this series possible.
