Telemedicine without frontiers: Does the internet change medical licensing requirements?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearch

Abstract

The fact that cross-border e-commerce often gives rise to complex legal issues is well documented. But little attention has been given to such issues where medical services are provided online. Telemedicine is the term for medical information being transferred by phone, the internet or other networks for the purpose of consulting, and sometimes remote medical procedures or examinations.
Taking as its point of departure the recently decided US case Hageseth v Superior Court 2007 CA App (1st) 54 (the Hageseth case), this article examines the legal issues associated with licensing of cross-border telemedicine.
