State licensure and differing regulations on privacy, licensure, and more have always been a barrier to virtual care models that seek to care for anyone with an Internet connection. Which of those hurdles have been overcome and which still remain? And how did COVID-19 and its associated waivers affect this complex issue?
On this episode of HIMSSCast, a tie-in to our Virtual Care Paradigm series, host Jonah Comstock welcomes Heather Alleva, an associate at Buchanan Ingersoll Rooney specializing in healthcare law, to get a rundown on some of these issues, including some little-known practice restriction. If you're thinking about starting a multi-state virtual care business, be sure to give this one a listen.
