Who should watch this webinar?

Health center and health plan participants in the Sustainable Models of Telehealth in the Safety Net initiative.

Our big takeaways:

  1. Participating teams are excited about reducing barriers to care for patients in rural areas, providing patients access to specialty care, and learning from their peers.
  2. Teams can expect a wide array of program support, including in-person workshops, webinars, telehealth coordinator training, and ongoing technical assistance.
  3. Each participating clinic should send two to four team members, including their Telehealth Coordinator, to the in-person workshop on Nov. 13, at the Center for Health and Technology in Sacramento. Reimbursement for mileage and parking is offered for up to two staff members per team, plus airfare, hotel, and per diem for teams traveling longer distances.
