Telehealth A to Z

Ethical

In addition to ensuring that the quality of clinical care is not impeded with the use of telemedicine technologies, it is also essential to ensure that all ethical standards are maintained.

Securing patient protected health information and all aspects of patient safety are generally major areas of concern. Below you will find a sample of the types of resources that are available.
