VPQHC Connectivity Program
September 20, 2020
Update: The program described in this podcast is now live and accepting applications from Vermont practices until Oct 5: www.vpqhc.org/ccptelehealthvt
In a follow up to our telehealth series from this spring, we check in with Hillary Wolfley, Associate Director at the Vermont Program for Quality in Health Care on a new program designed to help patients cross the digital divide and access telehealth.
Some additional links referenced in this episode:
- Our earlier episode on Broadband for Telehealth (May 14, 2020).
- Bi-State's Vermont Telehealth Resources Guide, which we update regularly.
- Recordings of (most of) the VPQHC telehealth office hours. At the beginning of the public health emergency the rules were changing so quickly that we didn't want to record and post things that were no longer true (that was also the time when we were not just date stamping the resource guide, we were hour stamping it).
- Hillary references Telehealth Access for Seniors as a program VPQHC is working with, you might recognize some of their materials from the Telehealth Resources Guide in the section on patient communications.
