Staying Connected to Patients in a Pandemic...
Staying Connected to Patients in a Pandemic Through Telehealth
As a Federally Qualified Health Center, Greater Portland Health (GPH) provides primary medical, behavioral and dental health services to Greater Portland's most vulnerable residents, including low-income individuals and families, the homeless, immigrant/refugee/asylum-seekers, children, elderly and the under-/uninsured. Its primary goal during the COVID-19 pandemic has been to remain fully operational and continue to support patients while keeping staff safe. This has required staff to implement telehealth services--something never used before at GPH.
