How to minimize virtual medicine liability risk

“Telehealth has come into focus during the COVID-19 pandemic as physicians face an immediate need to reduce exposure by providing care—or at least triage—remotely when appropriate.

Under usual circumstances, telemedicine is comparatively low risk. That said, telemedicine does bring specific risks to patient safety and physician/practice liability. Minimizing those risks calls for adapting daily practice routines around informed consent, documentation, and other standard components of a patient encounter, as well as adjusting the practice’s insurance coverage.”

David L. Feldman is chief medical officer, The Doctors Company and Healthcare Risk Advisors.

He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, “7 tips for telehealth during COVID-19.” (https://www.kevinmd.com/blog/2020/04/7-tips-for-telehealth-during-covid-19.html)

This episode is sponsored by The Nuance Dragon Ambient eXperience (DAX). The Nuance DAX solution makes it possible to forget the tech-toggling and reduces documentation burdens no matter how or where care is being provided. (www.kevinmd.com/nuancedax)
