International Telehealth Roundtable

Addressing Legal and Regulatory Barriers to Increase Access to Healthcare Through International Telemedicine

Legal, regulatory, and clinical experts discussed the latest trends and innovation in international telehealth at the International Telehealth Roundtable virtual two-day event April 7-8, 2022.

The event followed a roundtable format, focusing on: opportunities and challenges improving access to care through telemedicine; comparative telehealth models from around the world; issues facing U.S. providers serving international patients; and innovative ideas in telehealth

The roundtable also featured a special session on The Telehealth4Ukraine Initiative with special guest speakers from the Center for Telehealth and e-Health Law: Executive Director Christa Natoli and Ben Steinhafel, Director of Policy and External Affairs.

Panels were led by invited discussion leaders who are subject matter experts in international telehealth law and practice, and other invited guests had the opportunity for informal dialogue on pressing issues limiting or improving access to health care services through cross-border telehealth services. Our hope is that the roundtable will foster insightful conversation, sharing of best practices, and the strengthening of professional relationships.

Discussion leaders included leaders in international telehealth policy, clinicians practicing telehealth across borders, and leading legal practitioners and scholars in the area of global telemedicine. Please see the agenda for the full list of distinguished panelists.

The event was sponsored by the Law & Health Care Program at the University of Maryland Carey School of Law, the Journal of Health Care Law & Policy, and the UMB Center for Global Engagement.
