NRTRC Quick Start Guide to Telehealth

During the current public health emergency, March 20, 2020

March 24, 2020
Under normal circumstances, the development and implementation of telehealth is best accomplished through a thorough, deliberate planning process. However, due to the current public health emergency, health care providers are being encouraged to utilize telehealth when possible in lieu of seeing patients in person.

This quick start guide is for health care providers who wish to implement simple web-based video to interact with their patients.  It does not cover other types of telehealth, such as store-and-forward or remote patient monitoring, or the use of other telehealth technologies such as telemedicine carts or medical peripherals. All of these are excellent and often appropriate means of caring for patients, but are not covered here.

This document is intended for general education only. It is not clinical or legal advice.
