New Legislation Helps Remove Telemedicine Barriers

New Legislation Helps Remove Telemedicine Barriers | Trends in Retail Health Clinics  and telemedicine | Scoop.it

There is no doubt that the practice of medicine has changed in many ways over the years.  Local physician practices that used to serve those within their community, now own or work for medical entities offering services across state lines and physicians practice in multiple states, both via telemedicine and in person. 

Legislation in this country has largely not kept up with the times, but it is expected that we will soon see many legal changes to catch up with the increasingly national practice of medicine. 

One of the major hurdles that has delayed the growth of telemedicine and the expansion of healthcare providers is the control of every state over licensure of physicians within their own borders.  This means that physicians must be licensed in every state in which they desire to practice medicine. 

Although there are some general exceptions among certain states that allow reciprocity (and many states allow for second opinions and special consultations), most states consider a physician to be practicing medicine without a license if he provides services to an in-state patient without a license (whether via telemedicine or in the state where the patient is located).    

For example, if a patient is in Illinois and obtains a diagnosis and prescribed treatment from a physician licensed only in California, then absent an applicable exception, that physician has practiced medicine in Illinois without a license.  The same would be true if the physician came to Illinois to see the patient in person.

In the fall of 2014, the Federation of State Medical Boards finally came out with the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact, which is intended to streamline the process of physicians obtaining licenses outside their own state.  With this legislation, more states will join in the effort to allow physicians to engage in medicine freely across borders.   

Under the proposed legislation, a physician would generally follow these steps to gain licensure in multiple states:

1. The physician files an application with the state in which she is are primarily located.  This is known as the “Principle Board.”  This does not have to be, but would generally be the board in the physician’s state of residence. 

2. The Principle Board would then decide whether to recommend that the physician be issued an expedited license with another state.  This recommendation would be made to the “Interstate Commission.”  This is the body that has been charged with administering the Compact. 

3. Once a physician is recommended to the Interstate Commission, that physician would then complete a registration process and pay the applicable fees to practice in each state for which he is applying.  The normal license fees would still apply for every state in which the application is being made. 

4. Each of the “State Member Boards” will share information related to any complaints and actions concerning a physician’s professional performance in another state.  Although states already share in this manner, information will likely be shared more quickly under the compact.  Similarly, future actions taken against a physician in one state will cause similar action to be taken by the other states, most likely in a more expedited manner. 

5. Physicians will still need to comply with the medical practice requirements of every state in which they obtain a license.  In no way does the Compact alter a state’s jurisdiction over medicine in any state. 

The compact makes a lot of sense for licensees who know how cumbersome the process is to apply for multiple licenses.  Through the compact, a single set of verified documents will be shared with multiple states, rather than repeating the same process multiple times.  This saves time and money and opens up new market for physicians (and companies) who were deterred by the licensure process. The compact will hopefully also speed up the growth of telemedicine and mhealth throughout the country.

While there are many details still to be worked out about how the compact will work, it does seem to be a step in the right direction in keeping up with the current state of medicine.

According to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research “Telemedicine Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2014 - 2020,” the global telemedicine market was valued at USD 14.3 billion in 2013 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 14.3% in the forecast period from 2014 to 2020, to reach an estimated value of USD 36.3 billion in 2020.


Traditional medical practices have been followed since the time of Hippocrates, which generally involved patients traveling to the physician locale and waiting for a long period of time to get treatment. However, hospitals today have reduced waiting time considerably with the help of modern technologies such as telephonic appointments. The central factor of travelling to a healthcare facility and waiting for an appointment still persists in most medical institutions across the world hence, in order to suffice the unmet medical needs of people healthcare facilities have amalgamated medical science and instant communication technology to create a novel mode of diagnosis and treatment; which is now known as telemedicine.

According to the Health Care Cost Institute’s (HCCI) report for U.S in 2011, the per capita spending on healthcare increased by 4.6% from 2010, however the outpatient growth had reduced from 8% (2009-2010) to 6.8% in 2011. This clearly signified the change in trend among patients, with increased preference for home based telemedicine services. The safety and convenience of home based telemedicine was seen as the primary favoring factor for using telemedicine. The decreased risk of acquiring hospital infections is seen as the other factor responsible for choosing telemedicine over traditional medicine.


The global telemedicine market has been primarily segmented in terms of specialty and services offered. Based on medical specialty the market has been further segmented into cardiology, neurology, dermatology, orthopedics, emergency care, internal medicine, gynecology and other specialty areas such as gastroenterology, pediatric care, ophthalmology and dentistry. Dermatology emerged as the segment leader in terms of market revenue among the medical specialty segments, accounting for approximately USD 2.0 billion in 2013. This corresponds with the Center for Disease Control (CDC) study that suggested dermatology cases to be among the most reported cases in an Emergency Room (ER). The highest growth rate however was attributed to the neurology segment that displayed a CAGR of 15.9% during the forecast period, which was mainly attributed to the large number of strokes, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s cases. Psychiatry is also one aspect included in neurology and globally; psychiatry problems are often included within neurological or neurodegenerative segment, hence providing for a large patient pool in neurology. Psychiatry consultations are also the most frequently recorded form of neurological consultations worldwide.


By service type, tele-consultation showed the highest market revenue in 2013. Medical consultation services are the most common form of telemedicine used by physicians worldwide for differential diagnosis consultation. Video conferencing and telecommunication services like mobile phone, etc. are the favored forms of telemedicine consultation. Tele-monitoring exhibited the highest growth rate at a CAGR of over 15%. This growth is in correspondence with the large number of diabetic and disability patients in the world, which are rising with every passing year. Metabolic disorders like diabetes and other congenital diseases are the primary reason to activate constant monitoring among patients. Insulin injections and blood metabolite monitoring procedures are performed by devices which are then used to extrapolate the patient’s health.


In terms of geography, North America accounted for the largest share of the telemedicine market in the year 2013. This is attributed to factors such as country wide implementation of telemedicine and the presence of a majority of telemedicine service providers who have established their base of operation in the U.S. The fastest market growth rate was however exhibited by the Asia Pacific region, which is expected to grow with a CAGR of more than 16%. The ever growing population in developing and developed countries provides a large market for telemedicine, primarily because of the increased reach of telemedicine services and access to modern communication infrastructure in rural and developing regions. A majority of the developing world’s population lives in rural areas and is therefore inaccessible to proper healthcare. Besides convenience of location and cost efficiency, increased government initiatives are also supplementing the high growth. Additionally, the existence of a large number of technology manufacturing units in this region offering cheaper equipment ensures competitive service pricing and steady market penetration. These factors in combination are expected to assist in the growth of the Asia Pacific market during the forecast period.


The presence of a significant number of large and small players makes for a highly diverse and fragmented telemedicine market. However, a noted few players present themselves as the largest telemedicine companies globally, these include: CISCO Systems Inc., AMD Global Telemedicine Inc., Polycom Corp. and McKesson Corporation, to name a few. Among these, companies such as CISCO systems and AMD Global Telemedicine Inc. are the leading global companies in telemedicine. For instance, CISCO offers a wide range of TelePresence products and services in order to serve remote patient care and minimize the distance between patient and the healthcare experts through network managed services. The company has prominent presence in countries such as United States, Belgium, China, France, India, U.K., Japan and Italy. CISCO’s “health presence” software is a healthcare exclusive program, designed specifically to cater the needs of medical professionals and healthcare institutions worldwide. Likewise, AMD offers integrated high-definition video, advanced audio, third-party medical devices, and collaboration tools that provide convenience, efficiency and high quality patient care with high degree of data security as well as privacy.
