Telemedicine, a key innovation in support of health care delivery reform, is being used in initiatives to improve access to care, care coordination and quality, as well as reduce the rate of growth in health care spending. Your Advocacy Resource Center has developed a multi-pronged campaign that provides advocacy materials focused on telemedicine issues including but not limited to: physician licensure, private insurance payment policies, and the patient-physician relationship.
Below is a sampling of the state advocacy tools that exist related to this campaign. Please contact Kristin Schleiter, JD, Senior Legislative Attorney for additional information.
