Interstate Telehealth SIG

The Interstate Telehealth Special Interest Group (SIG) creates a forum for national interstate communication, cooperation, coordination, and potential collaboration and advocacy in telehealth expansion across state borders. The SIG provides a network for sharing knowledge and experiences related to telehealth within the national community addressing individual state's development and use of telehealth, as well as cross-border initiatives addressing a spectrum of clinical specialties and health issues both regional and global, respectful of each state's needs, capabilities, and perspectives.
