Telemedicine Rules

Posted on: 02/05/2021

The Medical Commission of my State of Washington conducted a virtual workshop recently to create rules in response to legislation. My thoughts:

Defining Telemedicine

We should define telemedicine as the provision of medical assessment and/or recommendations via electronic media, including "store and forward" technologies like email, texting and electronic fax. It should not include use of such technologies for setting appointments, requesting refills, and other purely administrative communications.
