Gov. Colyer Signs Telemedicine Law

Updated:
Kansas City, KS -

Kansas Governor Jeff Colyer, a physician himself, signed the Kansas Telemedicine Act into law during a ceremony at the  University of Kansas Hospital on Saturday.

 The Act makes Kansas a national leader in the delivery of modern healthcare through the use of emerging technology and improves access to healthcare for all Kansans.

    Telemedicine uses a real-time two-way interactive audio, visual, or audio-visual uplink giving doctors the ability to talk to their patients no matter how far apart they might be.  Telemedicine is an important tool in providing access to needed health care services. Through the advancement of this technology and its utilization, Kansans will experience high quality, accessible care regardless of residing in a rural or urban locality.

         With the passing of this bill, telehealth services can also be used for visits with a speech-language pathologist and an audiologist, something that hasn’t happened in Kansas until now.
