Using telehealth as a service can be overwhelming without the right resources. Our Telehealth Resource Centers have gathered resources on how to get started, what best practices you should follow, what’s required from a technology standpoint, as well as operating procedures and financial planning.
Telehealth can help address COVID-19 as well as other pandemic situations by limiting exposure to infection for vulnerable populations and healthcare workers. It can also expand the reach of resources to communities that have limited access to services.
Telehealth makes healthcare accessible for people in all areas, but there are key aspects to being able to use it: broadband and other technology. Our Telehealth Resource Centers understand the necessity for fast, easy Internet access in addition to the hardware necessary to utilize telehealth services.
Our Telehealth Resource Centers have gathered resources specific to Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs). Example resources include a Critical Access Hospital Telehealth Guide and a series of videos designed to provide content for FQHCs and Rural Health Clinics to assist with their telehealth implementation.
