Introduction to Telemedicine - Legal and Regular Issues


What is Telemedicine?

Telemedicine is described in different ways by the American Telemedicine Association, Medicaid, and Medicare, and by state definition. Telemedicine requires distance and the practice of medicine. Geographic separation during practice of medicine requires the use of telecommunications to gather, store, and disseminate clinical-related information; and the use of technologies to assess, diagnose, and treat medical conditions. Do not get too caught up in definitions, but rather focus on the relevant definitions specific to the assignment to assess where your exposure exists and what definitions to comply with. Typically, this requires a state-specific review of definitions, both statutory and those within the state professional practice acts.
