Telehealth providers like telehealth insurers and telehealth providers will be able to offer their telehealth products on the Internet.
That includes telehealth telehealth apps that connect doctors, nurses, and others to a patient, allowing them to take care of more patients than they are currently able to.
The new legislation will allow these telehealth app services to be sold for both mobile and desktop.
Telehealth app sales will be allowed in all states except Arizona, California, and New Mexico, which are not covered by the new law.
In the meantime, the telehealth industry is still facing a variety of challenges, including a shortage of telehealth nurses and other telehealth employees.
The telehealth sector employs more than 400,000 people across the country.
The National Association of State Telehealth Directors says telehealth will be available for sale in all 50 states, including the District of Columbia, the District and Guam, Puerto Rico, and U.S. Virgin Islands.
“As an industry, we’ve seen the value of tele health come to fruition, but we also recognize the challenges it poses to the telemedicine workforce, which is struggling to find new opportunities in the fast-changing telemedics landscape,” NASTAD CEO Tom McBride said in a statement.
“This is an important moment in our industry, as we look to continue the growth and development of telemedically connected care and ensure our workforce is able to continue to meet the challenges of the future.”
