Event Details

National Rural Health Resource Center (The Center)

Telehealth can be an effective tool in managing chronic conditions in reducing readmissions. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the 1135 Federal waiver permitted certified rural health clinics (RHCs) and federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) to provide services using telehealth without the restrictions that were previously in place. 

During this event, you will learn the basics of telehealth including how to get started, payment and policy considerations in value-based care. During this session, you will also hear from an RHC and SRH who are currently using telehealth to meet the needs of their patient populations.
