NEWS: Global Partnership for Telehealth Presents to Association of Social Work Boards

News Release: Sherrie Williams, COO of the South Georgia telemedicine networking agency Global Partnership for Telehealth, led one of several strategic planning focus groups at the Association of Social Work Boards’ 2018 Educational Conference in Halifax, Nova Scotia on Saturday morning. Williams’ presentation, titled “ePractice Across State Lines,” focused on educating social work licensing regulators about the ever-shifting technological landscape.

Williams, a licensed clinical social worker herself, said the ASWB tapped her for the presentation due to her vast experience in telehealth. “I was asked to provide ‘food for thought’ to these regulators so that when they put pen to paper, they have a much clearer understanding of what is happening in the telehealth marketplace in terms of legislation, rules, and trends,” she said.

According to Williams, writing sensible rules to govern social workers in the current electronic age is a delicate task. “My encouragement to them was to think strategically,” Williams said. “Technology changes at the speed of light. Regulators need to plan for the future and not necessarily the now.”

eWellness Developing a Tokenized Telehealth Payment System

eWellness Healthcare Corporation – a provider of the state of the art PHZIO platform for the physical therapy (PT) and telehealth markets — announced that it is developing the first tokenized physical therapy payment system for insurance companies, large scale self-insured corporations and their insured members.
