The National Telehealth Technology Assessment Center (TTAC) developed a Pandemic Response Project Team or “Think Tank” to create an Action Plan for a model to support rural communities in a return or continuation of COVID-19 – or a future pandemic – applying telemedicine capabilities and technologies. The “Think Tank” was assembled with multiple representatives from epidemiology/infection control, hospital CEOs, nursing, public health, technology, regulatory and policy as well as representatives from TTAC. Our presentation will focus on:

•The Task Force and membership expertise
•Critical issues facing providers in the pandemic
•Define/describe issues and specific needs
