In the time of COVID-19, we’re all hearing more and more about how telehealth is being used in clinical settings – physicians and other healthcare providers have been pulled quickly and unexpectedly into this new world. Telehealth is a paradigm shift for many providers as they try to understand not only the technologies involved but also reimbursements, liability, licensing, and much more. Some providers and patients are embracing the shift to telehealth while others are not as accepting – but it continues to move forward and is not likely to reverse course.
So, how can we ensure that we are supporting our partners who are interested in telehealth? How can telehealth be used in our public health practice to reduce the burden of chronic disease?
In this webinar, you’ll learn from national experts about how telehealth came about, how it has been used for years with certain populations, and how barriers such as reimbursement are being addressed. You’ll also hear from state experts about how telehealth is being used in healthcare systems and State Health Departments, from eICU care to remote patient monitoring and chronic disease prevention. You’ll get new ideas for how you, as a public health professional, can begin to incorporate the best of telehealth into your practice.
