Are you familiar with the federal regulation on telemedicine along with the CMS hospital CoP interpretive guidelines? The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) have conditions of participation (CoP) interpretive guidelines, based on the federal regulations, for all hospitals regarding their telemedicine standards. The regulations and interpretive guidelines also impact hospitals accredited by the Joint Commission (TJC). TJC made changes to crosswalk with the final CMS standards, which affect both large hospitals, small and rural hospitals and critical access hospitals.

Our presenter will review these regulations and interpretive guidelines, and the responsibilities of the board, medical staff and hospitals to ensure compliance.
