Resource Overview

Telehealth Services
Telemedicine and Telehealth are terms that are often used interchangeably. Telemedicine generally refers to remote clinical services, whereas telehealth can refer to remote non-clinical services, such as provider training, in addition to clinical services, and is consequently used as an overarching term. Telehealth programs provide Health Centers with an opportunity to provide extended services and access to specialization to their clients that might not otherwise be available in their immediate community.   

Telehealth programs developed within Health Centers will vary significantly in their objectives, size, and complexity. Organizations will differ in the way they make decisions and the workflow changes required to put them into action. The resources provided in this section seek to help Health Centers to better adopt and manage their Telehealth/Telemedicine programs.

TelePrEP

Using telehealth to expand access to PrEP

HITEQ Center 0 336

According to the Rural health Information Hub, the risk of contracting HIV can be greatly reduced through Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP), but the medication must be taken every day and patients need follow-up appointments every 3 months. Some patients often don't have access to it due to stigma, distance from the nearest specialist, and a shortage of primary care providers willing to prescribe and monitor PrEP.
