Information on your experience with telehealth needed

Complete this 15-20 minute survey from the COVID-19 Healthcare Coalition by Aug. 13 to report your experience as an individual physician with telehealth. Nurse practitioners and physician assistants can participate too. Your response will help inform where additional resources are needed across the industry and health care community, provide insights to federal and state policymakers, and identify gaps in current research.

The Telehealth Impact Study Provider Questionnaire has been approved by the Mayo Clinic IRB. Respondent and organization information will remain confidential and will only be reported in aggregate. The findings will be shared and made available to all on the COVID-19 Healthcare Coalition website, as well as shared by the various organizations participating in the Coalition Telehealth Workgroup. 

HHS “Telemedicine Hack” series helps you with telemedicine implementation

HHS is offering a series of educational webinars and office hours session to help providers gain the knowledge and skills needed to implement video-based telemedicine into their practices. To support wide adoption of telemedicine, HHS is partnering with the ECHO Institute at the University of New Mexico and the Public Health Foundation’s TRAIN Learning Network to deliver a 10-week, virtual peer-to-peer learning community called Telemedicine Hack.

The series includes five teleECHO sessions on key topics (e.g., workflows, documentation, reimbursement) highlighting best practices and case studies from the field and five virtual “office hour” discussion panels with case presenters, government agencies, topical experts, and stakeholder associations responding to your questions. CME/CEU credits are available at no cost to participants.

The HHS Telemedicine Hack sessions take place on Wednesdays through Sept. 23, 2020, noon to 1 p.m. EDT. Learn more about the HHS Telemedicine Hack.
