Credentialing & Privileging
This memorandum summarizes telemedicine rules for Hospitals and Critical Access Hospitals based on the July 5, 2011 Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) ruling which permits Hospitals and Critical Access Hospitals to provide telemedicine services to their patients through wrtiten agreements with a distant-site hopsital or a distant-site telemedicine entity.
