An opinion column in the Washington Post discusses the potential of telemedicine and its progress.  Telemedicine can save money by allowing for lower cost delivery of services, faster interventions for serious problems and distribution of scarce expertise to underserved rural and urban areas.  Telemedicine, however, encounters a number of licensing, reimbursement and other regulatory barriers.  Governments created these barriers and they should remove them as part of health reform.  (Wash.
