WEBINAR: Challenges to Delivering (and Receiving) Telehealth Across State Lines

01:00 PM - 02:00 PM

At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, many statutory and regulatory restrictions on the use of telehealth were relaxed in order to facilitate the on-going provision of health care while in-person interactions for non-essential care were halted. Many states issued emergency orders to temporarily waive requirements that a clinician must be licensed in the same state where their patient is located at the time of care.

As many of these emergency waivers end, many patients and providers are wondering how current state-based clinician licensing systems can and will transform to meet...

WEBINAR: Pediatric Patient Matching in an Adult World

01:00 PM - 02:00 PM

The growing demand for health information exchange brings the challenges of accurate patient identification to the forefront, especially for children who often don’t have common identifiers or have non-static demographic information.

 

Children move more frequently than adults, often utilize the healthcare system more, and may live with caregivers who are not their parents. Patient matching is complicated for adults, so how do we address the unique challenges of patient identity matching in pediatrics?

 

Join eHI, clinicians from the American Academy of...

WEBINAR: Managing the Business of Value-Based Care Through Data

01:00 PM - 02:00 PM

According to the latest survey data, 35.8% of all total U.S. health care payments were tied to alternative payment models (APMs) in 2018. While value-based care is growing, major hurdles to adoption must be addressed.

One key consideration in participating in and growing a value-based care model is building a provider network aligned with the goals of the payment model. Having access to up-to-date, reliable, and unbiased data can help identify which providers will best address the needs of a specific patient population and help your organization succeed in a value-based care model...
