Resource Summary: The National Consortium of Telehealth Resource Centers held a webinar exploring further uses and benefits of telehealth during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Resource Details: Telehealth can be a means to address COVID-19 through patient monitoring, treating and limiting exposure to infection for vulnerable populations, and protecting health care workers. Telehealth cannot only expand the reach of services to communities that have limited access to needed services, but also provide minimize exposure for both the health worker and patients who are at high risk for infection. This allows patients to receive health services away from settings where potential for contracting COVID-19 are high, such as hospitals and waiting rooms.
