Abstract

Providing medical care via data communication systems is an important element of telemedicine. This type of professional activity of a physician is subjected to all the requirements defined in the applicable law, in particular in the act on medical activity. While providing telemedicine health services, the same standards as for traditional treatment appropriately apply, including the requirement of due diligence and compliance with current medical knowledge. Due to the lack of a direct contact with a patient, compliance with these standards may prove particularly demanding.
