A telemedicine expert witness could support healthcare related matters, or the software, security and technology used behind the scenes. Regardless of whether the project requires a medical expert witness or a technologist, Cahn Litigation Services has the experience required to turn the search for an expert around quickly and provide the right balance of expertise and testimony experience.
Telemedicine, or telehealth, refers to electronic health-related services and information, allowing for long-distance patient care. Patients requiring care in most any practice area or condition, including family medicine, psychiatry, chronic disease, neurology, urology, mental health and internal medicine, can benefit from telemedicine services provided by a healthcare professional. In addition to cost savings, a major benefit of telemedicine is the elimination of possible transmission of infectious diseases or viruses between patient and physician.
Litigation support by a telemedicine expert witness could involve a medical malpractice case, or intellectual property matters such as a patent litigation or a trade secret dispute. Litigation support activities by an expert with specialized knowledge in telemedicine could include an expert report, expert opinion, deposition testimony and expert witness testimony in the courtroom. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, an attorney may request a qualified expert with prior expert witness testimony experience. The expertise of a telemedicine expert witness will provide credibility to enable the judge and jury to consider the evidence with the weight it deserves.
