The Center for Telehealth and e-Health Law (CTeL) was established in 1995 as the only agnostic legal and regulatory telehealth research institute.

In response to calls from key stakeholders in the then emerging field of telehealth, CTeL was created to provide vital support to the medical community on topics such as: physician and nurse licensure; credentialing and privileging; Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement; and private insurance payment policies relating to telehealth care.

Since then, CTeL has supported health care providers, entrepreneurs, law firms, associations, universities, insurance companies, and venture capital firms with strategic guidance and tactical tools for evolving their business models to navigate the changing landscape of legal and regulatory issues facing telehealth.

Today, CTeL holds international recognition as the source for intelligence on how telehealth practices and technologies come together in harmony with regulatory and legal boundaries to result in the highest quality healthcare within sustainable organizational models.  CTeL has the expertise to guide the development of telehealth care business and practice models that are effective, ethical, profitable, and sustainable.
