Telehealth Resources to Address COVID-19



What is COVID-19?

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a novel coronavirus that has not been previously identified. Symptoms include cough, difficulty breathing, fever, and mild to severe respiratory illness. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) the virus currently seems to be easily spreading throughout communities in the United States (community spread), meaning “some people have been infected and it is not known how or where they became exposed”.


Why Telehealth?

Telehealth can help address COVID-19 and other pandemic situations by limiting exposure to infection for vulnerable populations and health care workers. Telehealth can also expand the reach of resources to communities that have limited access to needed services. This allows patients to receive health services away from settings where potential for contracting infectious diseases are high, such as hospitals, health clinic waiting rooms, private practices, etc. Our Telehealth Resource Centers (TRCs) have compiled and developed resources specific to their regions.


Telehealth Tools and Resources

Several organizations developed resources that can help set up telehealth programs to address COVID-19. Some of the resources offered are focused on COVID-19. Also included are videos and toolkits that address telehealth etiquette, technology, implementation, and a directory that lists telehealth providers listed below:
