Politico Pro, a site for national politics and policy professionals, interviewed CSMS President Robert Russo, MD on current Connecticut legislation on telemedicine (SB 5).
“This is not an effort to protect the practices of doctors,” President Bob Russo said. “It’s an effort to make sure the patients are properly cared for and that the follow-up is necessary and that the team approach is built in.”
