North Carolina Medical Board Continues to Develop Policy on Telemedicine

The Policy Committee of the North Carolina Medical Board met on Wednesday, March 17, 2010, to discuss a proposed policy on Telemedicine.  The Committee approved the draft Telemedicine policy in January; however, the full Board asked the Committee to continue to review the proposed policy, specifically seeking clarification of the “informed consent” language. 

At Wednesday’s meeting, the Policy Committee noted receiving feedback from a number of stakeholders on the issue of informed consent and as a result has developed a “Board comment” to address those concerns. The Policy Committee, with the Board’s approval, will continue to accept public feedback on the Telemedicine policy and intends to continue to discuss the policy at their next meeting in May.  If you would like to offer written comment on this policy you can do so by emailing the Medical Board at [email protected] or writing to PO Box 20007, Raleigh, NC 27619.
