Telemedicine & Professional Liability: Ethics in Telemedicine

 

A physician’s ethical obligations are consistent across their practice, but telemedicine creates unique circumstances which may impact how those ethics are applied. The physician must be able to make careful decisions that account for privacy, confidentiality, and continuity of care.

In “Ethics in Telemedicine,” a short video on our YouTube channel, Gina Harris, ProAssurance Regional Vice President, Claims, describes the AMA’s ethical guidelines, and how physicians are working to establish ethical parameters to guide telemedicine practice.
