The Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Region 10 Office of Regional Operations presents Region 10 “State of the Region”, a panel to provide a region-wide perspective on telehealth activities and resources. Telehealth is especially critical in remote areas to extend the delivery of health care services, health education, and specialty care. As providers and provider organizations expand and enhance their capabilities, telehealth effectively works to improve care coordination and access to health care services. As telehealth tools increase, lessons learned and promising practices shared by expert users become necessary to ensure regional and national fidelity.
This session seeks to provide a forum for experts to share their expertise in the use and impacts of telehealth programs, HHS and HRSA resources, and will include a state-level perspective panel who will share information on assessments, lessons learned, and how other rural health stakeholders can move forward in their use of telehealth programs.
This session will also include an opportunity to hear from HHS Region 10 Regional Administrators who will share agency specific resource and program updates. The combination of these two sessions will result in increased awareness and understanding of telehealth resources, programs, and networking opportunities to support the use of telehealth.
