Telehealth technologies offer a means to mitigate burdens on the United States' health care system by allowing clinicians to furnish care from a distance. Unfortunately, state-based medical licensure restrictions inhibit the widespread adoption of these services.

In light of this analysis, this Comment recommends that the United States adopt a hybrid federal-state licensure model.
