St. Luke’s Hosts HAP 2016 Regional Meeting
Bethlehem, PA (4/01/2016) St. Luke's University Health Network hosted the 2016 Hospital & HealthSystem Association of Pennsylvania’s (HAP) regional meeting on April 1 at the Network’s Anderson Campus in Bethlehem Township.

HAP regional meetings provide an opportunity for local legislators to discuss the hospital communities’ priorities, opportunities, and concerns. Legislators and hospital administration at the meeting were part of a hands-on telemedicine demonstration between Robert Dolansky Jr., DO, Medical Director of St. Luke's Care Anywhere and Ray Midlam, St. Luke’s Vice President of Network Development.

The group of lawmakers and hospital managers discussed telemedicine and the support of telemedicine payment parity legislation which that would ensure that all payors reimburse hospitals for services provided through telemedicine the same way they would for an in-person visit.
