WEDI releases brief on introduction to Telehealth Codes

Jan 11, 2017, 17:07 PM
WEDI, an authority on the use of health IT to create efficiencies in healthcare information exchange, announced the release of an educational issue brief on an Introduction to Telehealth Codes. This issue brief was developed by the WEDI Innovative Encounters Workgroup with the intention to provide introductory information on codes for telehealth services by individual healthcare providers. The Innovative Encounters Workgroup is planning to develop a separate issue brief on the payer perspective of telehealth codes for future release.

Per the Issue Brief: “The use of telehealth to care for patients is gaining more traction among providers, patients, and healthcare payers. As telehealth services increase, more and more providers will want to offer these services, and they will need knowledge of the codes for these services. Currently, there are codes available to identify telehealth services. Ongoing acknowledgment of the application of current codes or the development of new codes will further address the needs for coding for telehealth services and potentially address current challenges with adoption of new technologies for delivering healthcare services.”
