Can I start a healthcare of medical practice online?
Yes, you can start a healthcare business or medical practice online. This is likely to be considered a telehealth business.
However, being online does not remove your legal obligations as a health business. The specific privacy laws for health information still apply to you, and you must take measures to ensure these obligations are met virtually.
For example, your online platform should have strong security systems and cyber security systems to keep your customers' data safe when being shared online. This may require two-factor authentication or training your staff with a Data Breach Response Plan.
You should also have the relevant NDAs, confidentiality agreements, T&Cs and disclaimers on your website to protect both you and your customers.
