Complying With Telemedicine Requirements

Duration: 60 Minutes
Laws governing telemedicine are enacted through state legislative action, with authority to implement the practice acts delegated to the respective state licensing board. The purpose of licensing health care professionals is to protect the public from unqualified practitioners. Practicing medicine requires a certificate of licensure from the state in which the practitioner is working and may require licensure in the state where the patient is located. Similar laws cover other practitioners such as physicians, nurses, pharmacists, therapists and other professionals dispensing health care services. Anyone starting a telemedicine service must be familiar with regulatory requirements, benefits, barriers, exceptions to licensure requirements.
