Government and Politics

A federal court indicts New York-based physician Elemer Raffai, MD for allegedly prescribing and ordering via telemedicine medically unnecessary durable medical equipment for Medicare patients he never saw in person, and most likely bribed, ultimately receiving $4 million in Medicare payments.

Findings from AMA’s annual telehealth survey show, not surprisingly, that 85% of physicians are using telehealth and 70% will continue to using it. Perhaps more interesting is the fact that more than half of surveyed physicians cannot access all of their telehealth systems from within their EHR, prompting interoperability and workflow concerns. More than 75% note that their telehealth software doesn’t automatically collect and deliver patient data.
