(1) As used in this section, “telehealth” means a variety of methods, through the use of electronic and telecommunications technologies, for the distance delivery of health care services, including chiropractic services, excluding in-person services, and clinical information designed to improve the health status of a patient, and to enhance delivery of the health care services and clinical information.
(2) A chiropractic physician who is licensed by, and is in active status with, the Oregon Board of Chiropractic Examiners to practice chiropractic may use telehealth if:
(a) The use of telehealth is an appropriate manner in which to provide a chiropractic service;
(b) The chiropractic physician is providing a chiropractic service that is within the scope of practice of the chiropractic physician; and
(3) The use of telehealth as described in subsection (2) of this section is not an expansion of the scope of practice of chiropractic physicians. The use of telehealth establishes a doctor-patient relationship.
