Mario Gutierrez, Executive Director of CCHP, will be speaking on two panels at the upcoming American Telemedicine Association’s Annual Conference on May 5-7 in Austin, Texas. On May 7 at 11:00 AM Mr. Gutierrez will facilitate the panel: “Model Potential Telestroke Savings: Can Telestroke Save Medi-Cal and Medicare Money?” The discussion will also feature Dr. Brett Meyer (UC San Diego) and Dr. Tom Nesbitt (UC Davis) and will review the findings of a CCHP commissioned study with Blue Sky Consulting Group which analyzes the potential fiscal impact of utilizing telestroke on the Medi-Cal (California’s Medicaid program) and Medicare.
Additionally, Mr. Gutierrez will speak on ATA’s State Policy Day on May 8 on a panel to discuss Medicaid telemedicine reimbursement policy. His presentation will include an overview of the National Telehealth Policy Resource Center and key findings and trends from CCHP’s State Laws and Medicaid Reimbursement Policies Report which provides an overview on each state’s telehealth reimbursement policies.
CCHP invites ATA Conference participants interested in telehealth policy to attend Mr. Gutierrez’s panels.
