New American Medical Association workgroup meets to discuss telehealth use in clinical practice

The American Medical Association’s Telehealth Services Workgroup held its first meeting this week with more than 50 industry experts to discuss how to advance the technology.

The group is “charged with facilitating the integration of the latest technological advances in telehealth services into the Current Procedural Terminology code set,” according to an announcement.

The CPT codes are a foundation to share information about medical services, and input from the workgroup will help it “reflect new technological and telehealth advancements available to mainstream clinical practice,” according to AMA President Steven J. Stack. Announcement
