House Bill 1332 requires the Virginia Board of Health to develop and implement a State Telehealth Plan to promote an integrated approach to the introduction and use of telehealth services and telemedicine services.
The bill ensures the Plan would include, at a minimum, provisions for:
- the use of remote patient monitoring services and store-and-forward technologies
- the promotion of the inclusion of telehealth services in hospitals, schools, and state agencies
- a strategy for the secure collection of data regarding the use of telehealth services
