FSMB & SMART announce new telemedicine policy
The Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) and its State Medical Boards Appropriate Regulation of Telemedicine (SMART) Workgroup has announced a new model for the safe and secure utilization of telemedicine in the delivery of healthcare. The policy, “Model Policy for the Appropriate Use of Telemedicine Technologies in the Practice of Medicine,” sets forth clear definitions and principles states can follow as they move forward with developing new telehealth policies.
“This is a benefit to both states, providers and patients,” said Barry Sawayer, CEO at Trinity Video Communications. “FSMB and SMART have crafted a new model policy that will have a true impact on when and where the use of telemedicine is appropriate, which is a win for all involved.”
