American Telemedicine Association Launches Program to Accredit Online Healthcare Services
Today, ATA launched an accreditation program for online, direct-to-consumer healthcare consultations. The program will accredit U.S. healthcare entities providing real-time, online consultations directly to the patient that meet specific standards.
The Accreditation Program will:
- help to assure online healthcare consumers they are making good choices when it comes to online healthcare,
- provide benchmarks for organizations building an online practice,
- and provide reassurance for payers that the virtual services they are reimbursing follow federal and state laws and regulations, assure patient privacy, are transparent in pricing and operations, use qualified, licensed providers, and follow appropriate clinical practices and guidelines.
From Dec.15, 2014 through Feb. 28, 2015, registration for the Accreditation Program will be open to ATA Institutional Members, Sustaining President's Circle and President's Circle members exclusively.
Further information about the program is available here.
