Overview

Through the data validation process, valuable information is gained that can then be used to improve performance around patient care or quality of care metrics.  Improving quality performance may take the form of improving data collection processes, better identifying patients who need additional interventions, or decreasing missed opportunities to provide patients appropriate interventions, among other possibilities. This section includes guidance on leveraging Health IT to improve quality performance including change packages for recommended approaches related to various quality of care measures.

HITEQ Highlights Webinar: Need Help Implementing Telehealth? Demystifying Barriers to Telehealth

HITEQ Highlights

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 discussed the current state of telehealth use by health centers and the barriers to implementation and use. We introduced participants to the national and regional Telehealth Resource Centers (TRCs) and provided 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/.
