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.
