Policy Issues in Relation to Telehealth in Canada
R.W. Pong, J.C. Hogenbirk, and D.A. Pearson*
Some unresolved policy issues could hinder the wider adoption of telehealth in Canada. Two discussion papers have been developed, one on licensing physicians for telehealth practice and the other on reimbursing physicians for telehealth practice. The two papers discuss the nature of the issues and review various policy option.
(commissioned by the Advisory Council on Health Info-structure, Health Canada)
Two articles based on this work - one on licensing physicians for telehealth practice and one on reimbursing physicians for telehealth practice - have been published in 'Health Law Review'. These two articles can be found on our Online Reports page.
