Telemedicine is rapidly evolving, and the number of physicians who use it continues to grow.
Whether you use telemedicine every day in your practice or you’re just starting to consider how it might benefit your patients, you probably have plenty of questions and concerns about using it effectively and within compliance.
That’s why the Texas Medical Association formed a task force that will help TMA serve physicians who want to integrate telemedicine into their practice.
The Telemedicine Task Force – chaired by Abilene family physician D. Allen Schultz, MD – met this past weekend and will develop TMA telemedicine tools and services, such as:
- Information and education on telemedicine, including regulatory and licensure compliance;
- Evaluation of vendors that best serve Texas physicians; and
- On-site consulting to help you develop and implement a successful telemedicine strategy.
In the meantime, take TMA’s free webinar Telemedicine: The Changing Shape of Care and visit TMA’s Telemedicine in Texas webpage for news, information, and resources to help you understand and use telemedicine.
And check out August’s Texas Medicine magazine, which features a story on how Texas practices are making telemedicine work.
If you have not yet registered for the TMA 2019 Fall Conference, the Dawn Duster topic will be practical application of telemedicine in the physician’s practice. Register today.
Finally, if you have questions about telemedicine services – or if you have information on telemedicine that could be useful to the task force – contact TMA by emailing HIT@texmed.org.
