Gain the skills to empower your organization’s telehealth integration and remove barriers to healthcare.
Over the past year, telehealth — and its subcategory, telemedicine — has seen its usage spike dramatically as healthcare continues through a historically transformative period. By October 2020, virtual healthcare solutions had seen a 3,000 percent usage increase.1 The COVID-19 pandemic may help explain this boom to some extent, but the technology’s expansion is indicative of a long-term change in the way patients and healthcare workers interact, as telehealth offers a safe, efficient solution to many medical needs.
The Stanford Center for Health Education (SCHE) Telehealth: Strategy, Implementation, and Optimization online short course allows you to explore the strategic considerations and best practices of telehealth and telemedicine. Take the opportunity to examine the clinical, operational, financial, and legal factors of telehealth, and assess how this technology can become a bridge to equitable healthcare access. In the course, you’ll identify and learn to overcome telehealth’s risks and barriers, while equipping yourself to make the most of its opportunities. Finally, you’ll explore how to effectively empower your organization’s telehealth efforts in order to enable successful implementation and ongoing optimization of telehealth delivery.
