Telemedicine is a rapidly expanding method of practicing medicine. Many healthcare organizations are eager to join this “trendy” delivery of medicine, but there are many regulations organizations must know before they begin practicing telemedicine. The article covers regulations from:
- The Food and Drug Administration
- Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services
- State Governments
Regulations when prescribing medications and additional risks associated with privacy and security are also discussed.
