Protecting the Telehealth Consumer: FTC and State-Based Considerations - McDermott Will & Emery

Protecting the Telehealth Consumer: FTC and State-Based Considerations

Overview



As the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States is easing, telemedicine is facing an important crossroads. While telehealth services have demonstrated their value as an integral part of care delivery, federal and state waivers instituted during the crisis are likely to expire soon. As lawmakers and agency officials consider updated or expanded digital health rules, regulators are expected to intensify their scrutiny of providers.

In this fifth and final installment of our webinar series, we’ll explore an important issue for post-COVID healthcare: consumer protections for telehealth consumers.

Our seasoned lawyers will discuss:

  • Privacy considerations beyond HIPAA, including FTC requirements
  • How to prepare for the Health Breach Notification Rule
  • The ins and outs of advertising telehealth, including claims, endorsements and social media
  • Strategies for engaging with users in the digital environment
  • Increased fraud enforcement
