Safety & Regulations of TCM Herbal Telemedicine
4 PDA - Pending
Telemedicine offers a lot of promise for both physicians and patients. For doctors, this class explores how Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine can be safely and legally practiced in the realms of modern telemedicine.
Most states now have laws regulating the practice of telemedicine. Safety is of primary concern. The laws only get more complicated and more uncertain when telemedicine is practiced across state lines – the doctor and patient live in different states. This class is based on Cleveland Clinic TCHM virtual visits experience and will explore safety, legalities of informed consent, initial and follow up visit, gathering of objective signs, herbal prescribing, billing requirements and proper EMR records keeping.
