The American Medical Association is urging telemedicine training to be part of medical school curricula, an announcement it made days after releasing new telemedicine guidance on physician responsibilities.
Telemedicine is on the rise, and can no longer be termed just a “fad”. The American Medical Association (AMA) is working to establish ethical guidelines for telemedicine and telehealth. What does this mean for telemedicine? Telemedicine is now officially on the way to becoming a part of the health care continuum of care.
The guidelines appear to have changed little but remote visits has turned into one of the biggest trends in healthcare. Next week the association plans to discuss adding the guidelines at its annual conference in Chicago.
The American Medical Association (AMA) today supported the bipartisan Creating Opportunities Now for Necessary and Effective Care Technologies (CONNECT) for Health Act to expand the use of telemedicine to achieve quality care for patients.
