NACHC offers monthly Telehealth Office Hours for health center, PCA, and HCCN staff who have questions or want to share information about telehealth related policy and operational activities. In addition to updates and Q&A, each session will focus on a specific topic of concern. These sessions convene the second Thursday of each month at 2:00 PM ET.

This Month’s Topic:

Join us Thursday, February 10 at 2:00 pm ET as we discuss Performing a Telehealth Risk Assessment. This webinar will provide approaches to implementing and sustaining robust clinical, operational, and technical strategies to assess risk of this method of care delivery and to increase patient safety and limit organizational risks. Time will be allotted for questions.

Considering the COVID 19 pandemic, telehealth became a preferred method for the provision of healthcare services. As the expansion of telehealth continues, organizations need robust clinical, operational, and technical strategies to assess risk of this method of care delivery and to increase patient safety and limit organizational risks. Unity Health Care used the methodology and framework proposed by Emergency Care Research Institute (ECRI) as a template for analysis. A multi-disciplinary team customized the framework to develop a comprehensive and easy to implement tool to perform a telehealth risk assessment. The comprehensive approach of this tool allows for a complete assessment of the dimensions that allow an organization to develop a telehealth workplan and strategies for continuous quality improvement of telehealth services.

National FQHC Telehealth Technical Assistance Partners Roundtable

The National FQHC Telehealth Technical Assistance Partners Roundtable (the โ€œRoundtableโ€) provides a forum for increased cooperation and enhanced opportunities for coordination among HRSA-funded Telehealth Technical Assistance (TTA) providers and other critical stakeholders. Through its activities, the Roundtable aims to maximize the impact of HRSA-funded TTA activities undertaken in response to the current COVID-19 pandemic, as well as to facilitate a timely and evidence-based response to the emerging telehealth TTA needs of health centers as they expand their competencies and capacities in the area of telehealth operations.
