Telehealth is growing rapidly in acceptance and adoption, and it offers potential to transform the delivery of care.

This session will describe telehealth; outline its benefits and challenges; explain the current regulatory framework for third-party reimbursement; highlight licensing, credentialing, and privileging issues; and identify privacy and cybersecurity considerations.
