It is possible to outsource UR Nursing and Case Management? If I am a foreign nurse, with a Vermont license, is it possible for me to practice as a UR nurse or CM nurse in my home country while working in an health care outsourcing company?
Do you mean for a US company, or a company in your own country?
If it requires a license in your country, I assume you'd need that license and not a US license.
If it's a US company, that may work, although you would possibly need to file a US tax return and pay US taxes (I don't know). Be careful though - "working" for a US company when you do not have work authorization in the US may have immigration implications (even if you're not physically in the country). I would ask a lawyer if I were you.
do you mean for a us company, or a company in your own country? the company, which is in the philippines, is a subsidiary of a us company that provides health care outsourcing to insurance companies in the us.

i wonder if ncsbn has any regulation about this? maybe it is time to discuss about the future of telephonic nursing. 'cause as far as i know, this type of nursing practice has reached the philippines.
Yes it is a new field, and the possibilities (and repercussions) are challenging. The Philippine company is URAC accredited, and it is during the accreditation process that I began to ask questions about the future of this field. I hope someone can enlighten me so that potential issues can be addressed as early as now.
PS: I checked the link that you gave me. I found some interesting topics. Thank you
