Telehealth continues to emerge as a cost-saving, outcomes-improving technology for private sector organizations - but can counties expect to reap the same rewards?
Some counties nationwide are already discovering the positive impact telehealth services can have on their county:
More timely access to care at a time of increased demand for services
Expansion of services to rural and other previously underserved areas
Support and promote early detection of mental health symptoms, or even predict the onset of mental illness
More effective use of clinical resources
Cost savings and risk reduction from providing services to persons in the most appropriate care settings
Just as telling are examples of telehealth engagement with complex populations, such as those with mental health or substance use disorders who are justice-involved, persons using emergency departments as their only care resource, or those experiencing a crisis within the community.
Join moderator AJ Peterson, Netsmart vice president and general manager of interoperability, and an informative panel for a one-hour webinar, The Telehealth Advantage for Counties, on Thursday, January 31 at 1 p.m. ET.
Presented by NACo, NACBHDD and their partners at Netsmart, this webinar will highlight several real-world examples of organizations that have adopted telehealth or partnered with organizations through telehealth to address county needs.
