Use of Telemedicine in Alternate Care Sites
ASPR TRACIE. (2020). Use of Telemedicine in Alternate Care Sites (Webinar).
The COVID-19 pandemic and the associated community mitigation efforts enacted have altered the delivery of and access to healthcare across the U.S. Healthcare providers are looking for new and innovative ways to deliver patient care to accommodate social distancing and community mitigation measures. The use of telemedicine has grown significantly in recent months. In addition to being used by outpatient providers, telemedicine plays an integral role in Alternate Care Sites (ACS). ACS are one of many alternate care strategies intended to provide additional hospital surge capacity and capability. HHS ASPR and ASPR TRACIE hosted this webinar where speakers discussed operations, management, and lessons learned from using telemedicine in these settings.
