if your practice relies on telemedicine, you need to be sure that you can provide the right kind of security and support for your patients. Telemedicine is increasingly important in an ever-growing digital world, and that means that the security of your telemedicine offerings needs to grow as well.
Applied SEM wants to help you grow your online medical presence, which includes helping you meet the telemedicine requirements you need to keep your patients and their information safe.
What You Need
Security is important in every aspect of medical situations but is, if possible, even more important for telemedicine. As technology improves for businesses, it also improves for people with more nefarious intentions, and you need to ensure that your business meets government standards for security so that you can offer telehealth solutions to your patients.
The telemedicine requirements for medical offices and clinics include things like a secure internet connection, video conferencing software, and the tech support to back these two components up. You need an internet speed of about 100 Mbps, which is a standard speed offered by major ISPs.
A secure internet connection also allows you to receive payments over the internet without worrying about your patients’ information being compromised.Your practice’s other requirements are determined by your state’s Practice Act, which can vary by state. Make sure to check your Practice Act for every type of service your office provides because some states have various Practice Acts for different medical services.
