At a minimum, you and your patient need access to secure telehealth software. Some doctors currently offer virtual visits through an app like Facetime or Skype, but note that these apps are not HIPAA-compliant. Using these apps for telehealth puts you at risk for HIPAA violations. They also only offer simple video chat, with none of the extra supports for telemedicine (like documentation, gathering patient complaint, ePrescribe, billing, etc.).
