Telemedicine Medical Licensing

CloudVisit Telemedicine Software Plans

During the rollout of your telemedicine / telepsychiatry practice, it is important to explore medical license laws and requirements as they pertain to your state and to communicating with patients outside of your state. To ensure success, we recommend the following “get-started” steps:

Your time is valuable

Start your telemedicine / telepsychiatry practice in your current state of licensure. This will help you improve patient retention and attract new patients without the need for additional licensing. You’ll establish comfort with this new treatment forum and perfect your online practice.

Business planning

Your business plan is an important part of your practice’s future. Create a telemedicine / telepsychiatry expansion plan to evaluate which states offer the most promising opportunities for new patients, targeted by your expertise.

Multi-State licensure

When you are ready to treat telemedicine / telepsychiatry patients across state lines, an experienced medical license consultant is the most efficient way to pursue out-of-state licensing and learn more about each state’s requirements.
