Doctors are taking advantage of a compact to get licensed to practice in other states via telemedicine. Since its launch more than a year and a half ago, 3,426 doctors have been issued medical licenses by state medical boards through the streamlined process provided by the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact, according to an announcement. The Interstate Medical Licensure Compact Commission (IMLCC), which oversees the process, said it continues to see an increase in the number of qualified physicians applying to obtain multiple licenses in different states through its expedited pathway to licensure.
