Integration with EMRs
The Federation of State Medical Boards statement on telehealth required that the medical record “should include, if applicable, copies of all patient-related electronic communications, including patient-physician communication, prescriptions, laboratory and test results, evaluations and consultations, records of past care, and instructions obtained or produced in connection with the utilization of telemedicine technologies.”
Additional information concerning privacy and security of patient records and exchange of information can be found in the referenced document.
Store and Forward:
“When a patient and their provider do not have to interact in real-time, store and forward technologies may be a perfect solution. Using options that range from simple software to complex stand-alone devices that are integrated into an electronic medical record, digital images can be captured and then shared with the distant provider at a different location or at a later time.”
