My practice is considering continuing remote work for some of our employees. What do we need to consider?

posted on

While many practices are in the process of resuming onsite business operations, some physician employers may wish to continue to allow certain operations and employees to work remotely. Given the rapid onset of the pandemic, some employers may have allowed remote work without a formal policy or procedure. As practices begin to reopen, employers who wish to continue to allow employees to work remotely should evaluate whether they have the proper technological infrastructure (to include sufficient privacy and security protocols), equipment, and technical support to maintain remote work capabilities. Employers should also develop an appropriate standardized remote work plan that addresses the specific needs of their practice, or review their existing policies to determine whether they should be updated to reflect current circumstances.
