WEBINAR: CMS Hospital CoP and TJC Telemedicine Standards


CMS Hospital CoP and TJC Telemedicine Standards: Telemedicine Credentialing and Privileging 

Course Curriculum
Are you familiar with the federal regulations along with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) interpretive guidelines of telemedicine? CMS has conditions of participation (CoPs) interpretive guidelines for all hospitals regarding their telemedicine standards. The regulations and interpretive guidelines also impact hospitals accredited by the Joint Commission (TJC). This program will discuss the most problematic standards in the telemedicine interpretive guidelines.

The regulations cover the revised credentialing and privileging process for physicians and practitioners providing telemedicine services. This revised process is less burdensome and, in turn, is now a smaller financial liability for hospitals. Attendees will learn all about the regulations and interpretive guidelines and the responsibilities of the board, medical staff and hospitals to ensure compliance with the regulations and to ensure a hospital’s compliance. 

Learning Objectives
At the conclusion of this session, the participants will be able to:
1. Identify the CMS regulations and interpretive guidelines which are now a part of the hospital conditions of participation (CoPs) on telemedicine credentialing. 
2. Describe how CMS includes a mechanism for all hospitals to use proxy credentialing with Medicare-certified hospitals or other telemedicine entities. 
3. Explain how a hospital has to have a written agreement that specifies the responsibilities of the distant-site hospital to meet the required credentialing requirements. 
4. Identify the Joint Commission (TJC) leadership chapter standards on telemedicine. 

Target Audience
CEO, COO, CMO, CNO, Director of radiology, medical staff personnel, teleradiology professionals, nurse educators, risk manager, compliance and patient safety officers, accreditation and regulatory affairs personnel, and anyone involved in telemedicine services.
