Advanced communication technology is revolutionizing the way healthcare is provided. One of the most significant advances in the last decade is telemedicine, which refers to a broad range of remotely-provided medical services. One such service is telehealth visits, through which physicians provide care for patients in remote offices. This can be especially helpful for patients who live in rural areas where only an advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) or physician assistant (PA) is available to provide service. With a telehealth visit, it is possible for the local provider and the patient to consult with a physician (MD) through an audio- or video-based telecommunications system. Using technology in this way presents exciting opportunities in the practice of medicine, but it can also significantly complicate medical coding.
