Abstract: Telemedicine will bring about new challenges to traditional systems of medical law. Firstly,according to the law,a doctor must perform medical treatment in the hospital where he/she has been registered. This rule is challenged by the appearance of "online hospitals ","cloud hospitals"and "cross-border healthcare". Secondly,in order to guarantee the quality of medical treatment,the doctor has the duty to examine the patient in person. This rule means that the application of telemedicine should be limited. Thirdly,risks in telemedicine are more abundant than those in face-to-face medicine. So the doctor performing telemedicine should bear heavier duties to inform the patient of those risks and then to gain the patient’s agreement on telemedicine.
