Partner Nathaniel Lacktman was quoted in an Information Week article published on May 6, 2014, titled "Telemedicine Guidelines Tackle Patient Safety, ICU Operations." The article explained guidelines that were recently drafted by the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) and the American Telemedicine Association to clarify rule uncertainties surrounding telemedicine, demonstrating the struggle many providers continue to have with this approach to care. Lacktman said, whether state boards opt to use FSMB's policy or not, the advent of the new guidelines should prompt state and healthcare leaders to discuss telemedicine.
