Virtual Workshop on Telehealth in Rural Areas Set, Oct. 12-14
NIH’s Office of Disease Prevention will host the Pathways to Prevention Workshop: Improving Rural Health Through Telehealth-Guided Provider-to-Provider Communication on Oct. 12–14. This virtual workshop is free and open to the public.
Telehealth-guided collaboration between care providers has the potential to increase access to services and improve health outcomes in rural areas. However, more research is needed to better understand how provider-to-provider telehealth affects rural patients, populations, health care providers and payers. Workshop speakers will identify those research gaps and explore barriers to and facilitators of successful and sustainable implementation of provider-to-provider telehealth in rural settings.
The workshop is co-sponsored by NCATS, NHLBI, the Health Resources & Services Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
