The use of telehealth technology by Florida licensed healthcare practitioners for the purpose of providing patient care within the state of Florida is not precluded by Florida law. Telehealth technologies may be employed for patient care as long as such technologies are used in a manner that is consistent with the standard of care.
If you are a Florida licensed allopathic or osteopathic physician please see Rules 64B8-9.0141 or 64B15-14.081, Florida Administrative Code, for more specific details about the practice of telemedicine.
