Webinar Reviews CMS CoPs on Telemedicine Standards

Significant changes were recently made to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Conditions of Participation (CoPs) regarding regulatory standards of telemedicine because of the COVID-19 pandemic. These standards, along with 1135 telemedicine waivers and new tag numbers assigned for critical access hospitals in 2020 and 2021, have impacted how medical staff must document services provided to patients.

The MHA Health Foundation webinar CMS CoPs and The Joint Commission Standards, Credentialing and Privileging will review regulations and CMS interpretive guidelines that are part of hospital CoPs on telemedicine credentialing, what hospitals must include in telemedicine contracts to maintain compliance, and more.

The webinar is scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon March 22. MHA members can register for a connection fee of $200. Members with questions should contact Erica Leyko at the MHA.
