WATCH: Telemedicine from an Attorney's Perspective
With Greg Gulick, General Counsel, Chief Compliance and Privacy Officer at Theoria Medical and 5-Star Telemed
Greg Gulick, General Counsel, Chief Compliance and Privacy Officer at Theoria Medical and 5-Star Telemed, discusses his role as chief legal council with a growing telemedicine company. As telemedicine is now a rapidly expanding industry, especially during the Covid pandemic, Greg explains privacy factors, licensing, the roles of physicians, caregivers, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and skilled nursing care administrators.
Greg also addresses the incorporation of data and artificial intelligence, using technology to calculate patient risk factors, and the ‘return to hospital’ rates. He explains increasing government reimbursement of telemedicine services, as patients and their families are discovering the efficiency of 24/7 service and doctors are able to manage and provide personalized service.
