Start Date:3/26/2020

Start Time:3:00 PM EDT

Duration:90 minutes

In the wake of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, recent government action has expanded telehealth coverage for Medicare beneficiaries nationwide, temporarily waiving penalties for HIPAA violations, and will reimburse physicians for telehealth services at the same rate that states pay for face-to-face services.

Ranya Habash, MD, Medical Director of Technology Innovation and Assistant Professor of Clinical Ophthalmology at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, works extensively with healthcare and technology companies like Microsoft and Everbridge, will explain how to utilize tele-ophthalmology technology. She will share various use cases, practice workflows, and updates to Medicare guidelines and reimbursement during the COVID-19 outbreak. She will also share telehealth best practices used at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute during this critical time. Stephen D. Klyce, PhD, FARVO, Adjunct Professor of Ophthalmology at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, chair of the ASCRS ASOA Telemedicine Task Force, and ASCRS FDA Committee member will moderate the webinar.

The webinar will follow with a Q&A session.
