Professional Requirements

Professional Boards Standards

There has been a slow but steady movement in professional regulation over telehealth in the past few years. Many states that had been silent previously in regards to whether or not a telehealth interaction could establish a provider-patient relationship are clarifying either in law or Board Regulation the circumstances under which telehealth can be used to establish a provider-patient relationship, and the parameters and requirements for doing so.  Often this includes requirements around licensure, informed consent and prescribing.
