Please if anyone has any knowledge I am begging to hear it. I don't think it is legal. I think the interdisciplinary Team must be present at the same table, how else can all members know that they are aware of the same patient. PLEASE HELP ME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:yawn::yawn::yawn:

I just lost my comment to you in cyberspace. Anyway, I will have to research this although I cannot comprhend how this will be done and maintain confidentiality as well as being safe. I mean that if you were having a phone IDG while driving to a home it would not be safe and if you are in a patient's home it would not be confidential. How do they propose doing this? What is the reason behind the change? I'm not sure if it spelled out in the regs but I will look and get back at ya. Good luck.:bugeyes:
