Telehealth and Homelessness: Lessons Learned Serving an Overlooked, High-Need Population

Original Live Date: October 13, 2020 at 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm ET

COVID-19 pushed the entire health care industry toward increased telehealth. For health care providers serving people experiencing homelessness, there are specific challenges meeting the needs of patients in shelters, on the streets, in encampments and in supportive housing programs. Implementing telehealth services was previously not thought possible for a high-need, medically complex population without housing. Join us for a conversation about the successes, challenges and lessons learned from safety net providers who have shown that telehealth can be a standard part of high-quality care, especially for vulnerable populations. We’ll also discuss policies needed to ensure that successes are made permanent.
