Need Help Implementing Telehealth? Demystifying Barriers to Telehealth

A HITEQ Highlights Webinar

Paul Rohde 0 489

While nearly all health centers have reported the use of electronic health records, only 38 percent are utilizing some type of telehealth technology, most notably to provide mental health services. Despite significant research that telehealth is as effective as in person visits, there are still many barriers to its use, including the lack of consistent visit reimbursement, technology costs, broadband availability, and resistance to changes to workflow.  This webinar will discuss the current state of telehealth use by health centers and the barriers to implementation and use. We will introduce participants to the national and regional Telehealth Resource Centers (TRCs) and provide information about how to access the resources and technical assistance provided by the TRCs.  For more information on the TRCs, please visit: http://www.telehealthresourcecenter.org/.

The intent of NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) continues to be recognition of primary care practice models that have achieved a mature level of transformation toward improving population health; improving the experience of care for both patient and provider; and reducing the cost of care through greater efficiencies of integrated patient-centered care coordination.   The redesigned process uniquely positions practices, staff and other key stakeholders to focus more on performance and quality improvement, and alignment with public and private initiatives in health care that reward value-based care.  

During this webinar, we highlighted the NCQA PCMH Core and Elective criteria. We also focused on advanced topics such as the Distinction Modules and eCQMs, and then ended the learning session by taking a deeper dive to discuss the integral role pre-validated health IT plays in practice transformation and physician alignment with public and private payer programs that reward for value-based care.

6/13 HITEQ Highlights: Health Center Framework for Effective Electronic Patient Engagement

A HITEQ Highlights Webinar

Alyssa Thomas 0 1248

Click here to listen to an archived recording of this June 13th HITEQ Highlights webinar.

The role of the consumer/patient is experiencing a significant change within healthcare in which the point of diagnoses and care is being increasingly shifted from the classical care provider setting to a more patient-centered model of health services. This shift in perspective and responsibilities is largely being stimulated by a critical mass in personal health information technology innovation and development, including patient portals, health apps, web-enabled medical devices, and personal fitness and health monitors. Health Centers are very aware of the benefits of patient activation and engagement, but at times need assistance in navigating 1) related regulations associated with policies such as Meaningful Use; 2) incorporation of patient engagement tools and strategies into the organizational workflow; 3) evaluation of patient needs, satisfaction, and activation; and 4) current tools and services available for electronic patient engagement. This webinar will cover the Health IT related policies, organizational changes, personal behaviors, and technical drivers that are converging to usher in a new era of patient empowered healthcare.
