Telehealth Expert

Sam shows physicians how to get paid. She helps them choose the right technology, get patients on board, and incorporate appropriate legal protections.

Telemedicine codes change from time to time. Hence, billing can be tricky. For example, there are specific billing codes that were approved for use during the COVID-19 pandemic. Some of them may no longer be valid once the pandemic recedes.

Leverage Telemedicine

Sam describes a much broader way to look at telemedicine. It’s not just a part- or full-time alternative to conventional face-to-face medical practice. Telehealth is a great way to expand your practice. Implemented properly, physicians can bring back patients they've lost during the pandemic.

It’s a generally more efficient, way to provide clinical care. As such, most clinical practices should consider integrating telemedicine.

During her interview, Sam explained that there are many services that can be provided using telemedicine. And the upside is that it enables a practice owner to reduce overhead, sending more income to the bottom line.

Using telemedicine reduces travel time. Clinicians can provide care from home. And patients like the convenience.


If you have not integrated telemedicine into your clinical activities, you should spend time learning more about it. And if you need help finding the best way to leverage telemedicine, you should engage an expert like Sam Lippolis to help you.
