Telehealth Transformation


Telehealth is at a turning point

New regulations and reimbursement practices have gained new traction and telehealth adoption rates have skyrocketed among patients and providers alike. Providers, payors, tech developers and patient advocates have an opportunity to launch, develop and implement telehealth solutions—but to do so successfully, they need intensive legal, business and government strategies counsel.

The time is now to move care delivery forward – from event-based care to ongoing, preventative medicine, that puts an empowered patient at the center of their own healthcare. We work with the industry’s leading providers, payors and technology innovators to:

  • Navigate the myriad licensure, patient consent and recordkeeping, data privacy, risk mitigation, corporate structuring, reimbursement, US Food and Drug Administration compliance and other regulatory issues that can make or break a telehealth initiative.
  • Knock down barriers for clients so they can efficiently execute their solutions across state lines and secure reimbursement with minimum administrative burden through best-in-class data analytics to forecast pricing and payment trends, medical claims audits, persuasive lobbying strategies, and telehealth-specific billing and coding systems.
  • Develop tools and collaborations that thrive in the complex world of healthcare and meet the needs of clinicians and patients alike, taking into account the unique challenges facing specific care settings, including assisted living, behavioral health and more.
