Telehealth Documentation & Administrative Compliance: Legal, Ethical and Other Requirements



Documentation Guidelines Webinar 3 CME/CE Hours Available

* This course qualifies for Legal & Ethical CME/CE Hours.

Have you updated your telehealth documentation to address recent state and association-specific requirements?

Reviewing your documents has never been easier. The Telebehavioral Health Institute can make this otherwise tedious process quick, easy and yes – even enjoyable (at times!)

This training series will help you spend just a few hours to get yourself in compliance with the rapidly evolving and surprising precise federal, state, as well as national accreditation and association requirements for telehealth documentation. You’ll be introduced to key concepts, documents and sample documents. You’ll be given assignments to review and then roll up your sleeves to augment your existing documentation to meet state, association and credentialing organizational’s standards for telehealth documentation. Whether you consider yourself a telehealth group or provider, and more specifically a telemental health, telebehavioral health or distance counseling provider, you’ll be given key principles, templates and handy checklists to get you informed, organized and in compliance with the rules you need to follow.

This training will help you address documentation concerns to consider including intake, progress notes, termination notes with respect to technical issues, interruptions, professionalism, and client/patient education.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • Identify at least two types of documents to use as a source for their specific discipline’s relevant documentation requirements for telemental health, telebehavioral health and/or distance counseling
  • Describe where to go to quickly and easily get relevant documentation standards and/or guidelines
  • Intelligently discuss why and when to think about technology-relevant standards published by groups such as JCAHO, URAC, COA, and CARF
  • Name where to go to learn about relevant federal and state regulations related to telepractice
  • Describe the role of other professionals in reviewing documentation requirements and where to find such professionals when needed
  • Describe documentation requirements related to team-based approaches to delivering telebehavioral health care (i.e., integrated care) that go beyond one’s specific disciplinary telehealth requirements
