FOR THE MOBILE WORKFORCE
Organisations worldwide are increasingly considering teleconsultation as a primary medical support for employees. In a range of medical cases it can provide a convenient, timely, and cost effective way to support medical consultation and prescription needs to employees while working abroad.
The new white paper from the International SOS Foundation, endorsed by the International Society for Telemedicine & eHealth (ISfTeH), explores the essential considerations that organisations should be aware of when assessing a teleconsultation service. The paper provides in depth insight into country level legal guidelines and clinical best practice of teleconsultation services, as well as case studies and global best practices to help guide organisations in choosing a provider.
The paper is authored by Nathaniel Lacktman, Esq., Partner at leading law firm Foley & Lardner LLP where he is Chair of the firm’s Telemedicine and Digital Health Industry Team, and Dr Neil Nerwich, International SOS Group Medical Director, Assistance.
