Practitioners of sleep telemedicine are required to make sure that their procedures adhere to all relevant institutional, state, and federal laws. In addition to having completed credentialing and privileging processes at outside facilities, providers must hold a license in each state in which they operate and refrain from any actual or apparent conflicts of interest when delivering care. Prescribing over the internet is still restricted to specific situations. Depending on the insurer, telemedicine may or may not be covered by a malpractice insurance policy, particularly if treatment is given across state lines. Patient health information must be protected in all telemedicine programs. Similarly, both in-person and telemedicine-based care are subject to the bioethical norms of autonomy, beneficence, nonmaleficence, and fairness.

Key points

  1. Practitioners of telemedicine should adhere to all applicable federal, state, and facility practice regulations.
  2. The Interstate Medical Licensure Compact has made multistate medical licensing more streamlined.
  3. The same ethical, conflict of interest, and privacy requirements that apply to in-person medical practice also apply to telemedicine.
  4. practitioners should work with their malpractice insurance to guarantee proper coverage.

Nearly as long as telemedicine has been around, regulations have surrounded it. By 1992, five states had passed legislation; three years later, fifteen states had done the same. Now, twenty-five years later, telemedicine is covered by legislation in all 50 states.1 State-based legislation is layered with federal statutes and any facility-specific restrictions, creating a maze of regulations that can be confusing to even the most dedicated sleep telemedicine professional.
