Telehealth

The importance of using technology to access to health care was underscored in 2020 as the COVID-19 pandemic surged through the nation and demanded social distancing to reduce risks of contagion.  The novel and deadly virus highlighted the value of TELEHEALTH for the delivery of health services, particularly to older people who are often at higher risk for poor outcomes by having multiple chronic conditions.  The Center fully supports telehealth delivery of care to older people as important option for their ongoing care and treatment, not just during the pandemic.  Our aim is to advance best practices through training, adoption in practice, and linkages to expert resources for students, faculty, practitioners, and community members alike.
