National Pandemic Response: Best Practices and Lessons Learned

National Pandemic Response: Best Practices and Lessons Learned

NCTRC Telehealth Hack Series

The National Telehealth Technology Assessment Center (TTAC) developed a Pandemic Response Project Team or “Think Tank” to create an Action Plan for a model to support rural communities in a return or continuation of COVID-19 – or a future pandemic – applying telemedicine capabilities and technologies. The “Think Tank'' was assembled with multiple representatives from epidemiology/infection control, hospital CEOs, nursing, public health, technology, regulatory and policy as well as representatives from TTAC. Our Telehealth HACK presentation focuses on:

•The Task Force and membership expertise
•Critical issues facing providers in the pandemic
•Define/describe issues and specific needs
•Document a plan (useful guide) to address issues immediately and in the future
•Identify examples of technology
•Create a Policy-Regulatory summary to inform and guide policy recommendations and change
