Make plans to join us on Wednesday, June 3rd from 6 - 7 p.m. for our next virtual program hosted by RAM's Women in Focus Committee! While the pandemic is preventing us from meeting in person, we'll be bringing this timely program to RAM members via Zoom!
COVID-19 has launched us into the world of remote care (e.g., telemedicine, remote patient monitoring) perhaps quicker than what would have happened under normal circumstances. Rebecca Gwilt, Co-Founder and Partner at Nixon Law Group, will talk to us about legal ramifications along with technical components of remote care technologies, while discussing how policy and law is shifting and the likely impact on provider adoption. What has changed as a result of the PHE, what has not, and what this means for providers searching for the “new normal”? Hope you can join us for this informative program!
