San Antonio: You Have Telemedicine Questions
By David Doolittle

2.1 telemedicineBy now you probably have at least heard about telemedicine, which allows physicians to meet with patients by electronic means outside a traditional office visit.

But, if you’re like many physicians, you probably have a lot of questions: Is telemedicine for me? How do I use it in my practice? How do I bill and get paid for it? 

Well, TMA’s new seminar, TELEMEDICINE: How to Implement Virtual Care and e-Visits in Your Practice, can provide answers to those questions, and many others, including: 

  • How telemedicine can change health care delivery;
  • Specifics of providing telemedicine services;
  • Getting paid for telemedicine services;
  • New terminology you need to know; and
  • Current law and Texas Medical Board rules. 

The best news is that the seminar counts for 3.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits and 1 hour of ethics.

The seminar will be held from 9 am to 12:30 pm Feb. 6 in San Antonio at the Bexar County Medical Society headquarters, 4334 N. Loop 1604 West, suite 200. 

If you can’t make it in person, register for a live stream on March 6. The live stream will allow you to watch and even ask questions from the comfort of your home or office. 

As always, TMA has a ton of information on telemedicine on its website
