1.1.3 Definition of Registered Medical Practitioner (RMP)
For the purpose of this document a ‘Registered Medical Practitioner’ is defined as a person who is enrolled in the State Medical Register or the Indian Medical Register under the IMC Act 1956.
Guidelines for Telemedicine in India
The professional judgment of a Registered Medical Practitioner should be the guiding principle for all telemedicine consultations: An RMP is well positioned to decide whether a technology-based consultation is sufficient or an in-person review is needed. Practitioner shall exercise proper discretion and not compromise on the quality of care. Seven elements need to be considered before beginning any telemedicine consultation (see panel)
TELEMEDICINE SHOULD BE APPROPRIATE AND SUFFICIENT AS PER CONTEXT .
- The Registered Medical Practitioners should exercise their professional judgment to decide whether a telemedicine consultation is appropriate in a given situation or an in-person consultation is needed in the interest of the patient. They should consider the mode/technologies available and their adequacy for a diagnosis before choosing to proceed with any health education or counseling or medication. They should be reasonably comfortable that telemedicine is in the patient’s interest after taking a holistic view of the given situation.
- Complexity of Patient’s health condition Every patient/case/medical condition may be different, for example, a new patient may present with a simple complaint such as headache while a known patient of Diabetes may consult for a followup with emergencies such as Diabetic Ketoacidosis. The RMP shall uphold the same standard of care as in an in-person consultation but within the intrinsic limits of telemedicine.
