The Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) has finalized their language for the proposed compact as of September 5, 2014. The goal of the compact is to improve the process for physicians desiring a license in multiple states while developing an overall process that is safe for patients and sensible for board administration.

This compact is not developed for Telemedicine providers, but it does impact them greatly as it will remove a long standing barrier to practice in other states. The press release from the Center for Connected Health Policy is available for your review by clicking below:
