Presented by: Catherine M. Ballard, Esq.

As provider shortages grow and patients’ needs intensify, healthcare institutions are taking advantage of using telemedicine practitioners. While distance doesn’t diminish a hospital’s responsibility to thoroughly vet and assess affiliated practitioners, it can throw a wrench in conventional credentialing approaches.

In this 90-minute webinar, Catherine M. Ballard, Esq., will explain the benefits of credentialing by proxy and walk attendees through the steps to set up a proxy agreement. Ballard will also provide practical, compliance-minded guidance on vetting and assessing the competence of telemedicine practitioners as well as other legal aspects to keep in mind. Ballard will further provide an analysis of frequently asked questions based on situations that commonly arise in the field, then conduct a live Q&A session.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Identify provisions that need to be included in contracts for credentialing by proxy
  • Process applications for practitioners seeking telemedicine privileges
  • Identify the pros and cons of entering into contracts for credentialing by proxy
