Teledermatology, teledermatopathology, interstate dermatopathology and the law.


The expansion of telemedicine nationwide has resulted in many states adopting specific telemedicine regulations to avoid the issue of requiring a full medical license to practice telemedicine. How these laws and regulations relate to the practice of telepathology and teledermatology has not been well delineated. It is important to understand these regulations to avoid potential judicial penalties arising from non-compliance. This article aims to outline state-specific telemedicine regulations and penalties.
