Telemedicine uses two-way video conferencing and other forms of electronic communications to allow health care professionals to provide clinical health care to patients in distant locations.  In 1997, the Oklahoma Telecommunications Act created the Oklahoma Universal Service Fund (OUSF). This fund may reimburse certain agencies for expenses associated with telehealth and is managed by the Oklahoma Corporation Commission. The Oklahoma Hospital Association closely monitors, on behalf of its members, legislative and regulatory changes in this area.
