Possibilities & the Regulatory Environment on Telemedicine

On April 282020, the Federation of Hellenic Medical Societies of North America organized a successful hour-long workshop on the topic Possibilities & the Regulatory Environment for the Practice of Telemedicine in cooperation with Capgemini, Inc.

As medical communities across the world are reeling under the impact of COVID 19, the crisis has also brought home the need for updated use of Technology in Medicine.  Dr. Becky Rao, Global Head of Healthcare facilitated the web-conference, along with Dr. Jay Subramanian (Capgemini) and Dr. John Korangy (Careclix).  The following very interesting topics were covered:

1. Review of current Telemedicine practices,

2. Recent Regulatory changes, and

3. Insurance Reimbursements relating to Telemedicine.

This unique workshop was conducted as part of Capgemini’s Corporate Social Responsibility Initiative as a response to COVID 19 needs.

Thirty-two physicians across North America and Greece participated.
