Telemedicine companies say they’re used to meeting strict data security requirements, and deregulation will make it easier for them to reach patients.

“I think it’s a balance. For decades the telemedicine industry has been overregulated,” Jon Pearce, CEO of telemedicine company Zipnosis, told Tonya. “On the flip side, I do think we need to make sure any telemedicine providers are held to basic protections. Generally deregulating it and making it easier for patients to access it is great.”
