American Telemedicine Association Supports Medical Licensure Reform

On Tuesday, January 31 the American Telemedicine Association will host an important Capitol Hill briefing entitled, “Physician Licensure Barriers to 21st Century Healthcare.”  This public briefing is designed to inform Congressional offices, national organizations and other key stakeholders about how the current U.S. state-based systems to license and regulate physicians unduly restrict quality modern healthcare. Speakers will share constructive ideas for medical licensure reform.

The briefing will be held in the Russell Senate Office Building Caucus Room (SR-325) on Tuesday, January 31, 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

This event is free and open to the public. To attend, please RSVP at http://www.americantelemed.org/briefing.

The briefing is part of ATA’s larger effort to promote the deployment of interstate telemedicine, by reforming the U.S. medical licensure system.  For more information about ATA’s activities in this area, please visit www.fixlicensure.org.
