Ocular SIG

Working meeting on Feb 7 will focus on state regulation regarding ocular telehealth, specifically centered on 3 areas:

  • Standards of care
  • Patient-provider relationships
  • Patient record keeping.

Two of our SIG members will be leading the conversation, providing examples of current state regulation and discussing some pending legislation/rulemaking on these topics.
