VCPR and Telehealth during the Covid Crisis
Can I prescribe medications via telehealth in NY State without seeing the patient in person?
This question is the jumping off point for an in-depth examination of telehealth platforms in the age of Covid-19.
We hear from NYSVMS lawyer, Frank Fanshawe, on the potential exposure to civil lawsuits and how to manage the risk. Dr. Doug Aspros, Chair of the NY State Board of Veterinary Medicine discusses what it means for VCPR to be in guidelines and not law.
We also have two perspectives on how much value telemedicine brings to the profession, with Dr. Hilary Jones from Teletails, and Dr. Howard Gittelman another member of the Board of Veterinary Medicine.
