This start-up and resource guide was created in partnership between Telligen and the Great Plains Telehealth Resource and Assistance Center (gpTRAC). The guide provides an overview and framework for implementing telehealth in critical access hospitals and rural areas. It also points the reader to reliable and informative resources for learning about telehealth and the organizations that support the use of telehealth in various ways. This guide aggregates information about policy considerations (e.g., licensing), best practices, toolkits and the benefits of telehealth to health care organizations in terms of improving outcomes and generating revenue. The resource is available as a link listed on the gpTRAC webpage above.
