The value of a telemedicine credentialing policy

Telemedicine providers communicate with patients or other caregivers via electronic communications. They will remotely review medical records, render a diagnosis, provide radiologic interpretation, or prescribe treatment, all without ever stepping foot inside the hospital.

As a result, telemedicine agreements sometimes create special circumstances that derail normal credentialing procedures.
