ComputerDr-GettyImages-508064826You may recall that the AVMA has been investigating telemedicine and how it might be used appropriately within the veterinary profession. A benchmark in that investigation has been reached in that the AVMA’s Practice Advisory Panel, which was assigned the issue, has provided its final report to the Board of Directors.

The AVMA now wants your input, especially on the Practice Advisory Panel’s recommendations regarding the AVMA’s Model Veterinary Practice Act and the policy on Remote Consulting, the summary of which starts on page 37 of the report.

Please send comments to Telemedicineatavma [dot] org no later than March 15, 2017.  Your input is important! AVMA leadership will consider input received by the deadline as it deliberates potential AVMA policy, strategy, and resources on telemedicine.
