Quick Check: Telehealth Care

Using our Quick Check tool can help you minimize potential liability risks associated with telehealth care.

The checklist addresses the following areas: meeting legal, regulatory, and licensing requirements; providing security and privacy for patients and information; maintaining the standard of care; establishing the practitioner-patient relationship; providing patient evaluation, treatment, and informed consent; documenting patient records; implementing written policies, procedures, and guidelines; and preparing patients for a telehealth encounter.

The tool also provides a resource list and contact details for additional guidance.
