Governor paves way for doctors to ramp up telemedicine use
The medical community in Washington state had a big win on Friday when Gov. Jay Inslee signed a bill that will allow health care providers to get reimbursed for using telemedicine to treat patients. That's a huge deal in a state with a shortage of primary care physicians. Using telemedicine, an appointment during which a doctor confers with a patient usually over the computer, can help doctors see more patients. It's especially helpful for patients in rural areas, or patients who are disabled, for whom it might be a tall order to travel all to a doctor's office.
