In a survey of 57 medical boards in U.S. states and territories, telemedicine was the most common choice when ranking the most important regulatory topics in 2017. Boards were asked to choose five of the most important policy areas in a survey from the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB). 75 percent include telemedicine on that list.
The article concluded by stating "Telehealth is one area where major medical associations could find a receptive partner in the incoming administration of President-elect Donald Trump. The American College of Physicians told its membersafter the election it expected expanding access to telemedicine to be on the agenda for the next Congress."
