Senate telemedicine plan before first committee of reference Tuesday

The bill, titled the Florida Telemedicine Act, would define how doctors could qualify to provide services via teleconferencing technology if they don’t have a Florida license.

Those against the plan say its qualifications for doctors outside the state could diminish the quality of care.
