Telehealth Operations and Quality: Ask Anything
As health centers have newly established, scaled and/or enhanced their telehealth services during the pandemic year, they have navigated a variety of challenges, including policy and practice changes, logistics of implementation, privacy and security considerations, connectivity issues, ensuring quality services and patient and provider satisfaction. As health centers continue to refine their telehealth services amidst a changing context, the HITEQ Center is pleased to offer a panel of telehealth experts to address health center questions. Panelists offer expertise in: set up and implementation of telehealth; clinical workflows, roles and training; hybrid care; patient-centered services; remote patient monitoring; telebehavioral health; telehealth optimization, maturity and performance management.
View the HITEQ Center's Telehealth Operations and Quality: Ask Anything session. The session, moderated by HITEQ’s Training and Technical Assistance Advisor, Natalie Truesdell, will provide an open forum for health centers to ask panelists their most pressing questions about telehealth services in the health center setting, such as:
- How can we fully integrate telehealth into our overall care delivery model?

- What might be the best approach to optimizing care for patients with chronic conditions?

- How can telehealth be more than a ‘transactional’ interaction?
- Can it be used to provide more touchpoints through different levels of care?
