Media Advisory: Mayo Clinic to testify about Interstate Medical Licensure Compact and MN Telemedicine Act
WHAT: Mayo Clinic will testify to the Minnesota House Health and Human Services Reform Committee regarding the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact and Minnesota Telemedicine Act. Each year, Mayo Clinic physicians see people from all 50 states. Advances in technology are helping patients who may be faced with long-distance travel and logistical hurdles connect with Mayo Clinic’s specialized health care providers easier and faster. However, the patchwork of state-by-state medical licensing rules presents a costly and time-consuming barrier to telehealth care delivery.
WHO: Steve Ommen, M.D., medical director of Center for Connected Care, Mayo Clinic
WHERE: 10 State Office Building, 100 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, St. Paul, MN 55155
WHEN: Friday, Mar. 13th at 10 a.m. CT
