The tally of states at the vanguard of a movement that promises to alleviate physician shortages now stands at eight.

Alabama and Minnesota became the seventh and eighth states to enact the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact on this month, triggering the formation of the Interstate Medical Licensure Compact Commission. The commission aims to administer a streamlined process for physicians seeking to obtain licensure in multiple states. Greater license portability is expected to be a boon to the practice of telemedicine.
