Telemedicine Business Registry

On June 21, 2016, Governor Walker signed in to law SB74, which immediately enacted the state’s new Telemedicine Business Registry. The Department of Commerce, Community, and Economic Development’s Professional Licensing Section established regulations for the telemedicine business registry, where the program is administratively housed and maintained. Included on this website, you’ll find applications pertaining to the Telemedicine Business Registry (TBR), a TBR informational packet, Frequently Asked Questions, and regulations relevant to this registry. All businesses engaged in or planning to engage in telemedicine services must register with our Department.

Please note, telemedicine and telehealth services are often used synonymously, however, the definition of telemedicine services is given in general government statute, AS 44.33.381 and is provided below for your reference:

"Telemedicine services" means the delivery of health care services using the transfer of medical data through audio, visual, or data communications that are performed over two or more locations by a provider who is physically separated from the recipient of the health care services. AS 44.33.381
