So far, this is the best coverage I've seen of the FSMB Policy Guidelines for the Appropriate Use of Telemedicine in the Practice of Medicine.

Is it not significant that the leading sponsor on this page is Verizon. The guidlines from the FSMB were well considered and can be modified in the future to account for technological advances.
