5 Big Mistakes to Avoid When Looking for a Telehealth Job

 1 CE Hour Available

They all may be attractive, but not all telehealth employers are the same.

Attacking the telehealth and behavioral telehealth markets with a variety of creative marketing approaches, new telehealth companies are opening their doors every week. All offer licensed professionals the opportunity to connect with online clients/patients, but some lack fundamental protections for you, the professional.

The problem isn’t what they say but rather, what they don’t say…. They all too often restrict your ability to meet your legal and ethical mandates, and then, download liability for lawsuits, costly legal fees, ethics violations and regulatory investigations squarely onto your shoulders.

Before you offer your services online, get all the facts.

As lead author on several textbooks about telemental and telebehavioral health competencies, TBHI’s Executive Director, Dr. Marlene Maheu will present this webinar to outline the five biggest mistakes made by licensed clinicians who offer services through online employers. She’ll help you identify key information to look for in a potential online employer’s website; how to read their contracts for clauses that may become problematic, and how to evaluate if they technology will allow you to meet requirements set by their licensing board and profession’s ethical code. 

What will you get?

  • You’ll walk away with a checklist of risk management issues to consider when choosing an online employer to grow your practice.
  • Inside information about how a number of online companies cut corners and saddle you with all the liability they can, whether or not you realize it.  (As always, TBHI has your back.)
  • A question list to use for choosing which employer(s) to trust and which to avoid.
