Learn How to Implement and Scale Your Virtual Care Program
New technologies are fundamentally changing the way people interact with health care. Successful implementation of hybrid virtual care is imperative for improving patient outcomes and ensuring financial stability for health care practices. CTRC Telehealth Implementation Workshop Series is designed to help health centers to evaluate their telehealth programs and create a successful strategy for improving virtual care delivery.
Our curriculum was developed by staff with over 40 years of combined knowledge and experience in telehealth, in collaboration with a diverse community of health care pioneers and innovators who have shared their experience and wisdom with us over the years. If you are seeking to improve or launch a new telehealth program at your health center, join us in this upcoming Virtual Workshop Series!
Participants will use the CTRC Telehealth Implementation Roadmap to navigate the critical steps in successfully planning or revitalizing a telehealth program. During each session, we will share tips, tools, and guidelines to help our participants successfully navigate telehealth implementation. Participants will also have the opportunity to connect with peers and organizations in similar positions for shared learning. Whether you are launching a new telehealth program, looking for change management guidance, or just seeking out opportunities for improvement to take your telehealth program to the next level, this series will provide you with ample insight and opportunities.
The areas addressed during this series of sessions will include specialty service needs, payer mix, technical infrastructure, staffing resources, virtual visit best practices, clinical staff and administrative leadership buy-in, and additional program success and sustainability considerations.
