FQHC Webinar Series Part 1 – Telehealth and Chronic Care Management

By |

With the increasing number of reimbursement codes and interest from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in paying for Chronic Care Management (CCM) services in Medicare, opportunities are available to CHCs to take advantage of utilizing remote patient technology (RPM) to address their community’s needs. By managing chronic conditions, more serious health episodes may be avoided leading to potential cost saving and better quality of life for patients. Join us as we explore these opportunities and how to take advantage of them.

FQHCs will learn how to intiate their own telehealth program. Our presenters are directors of FQHCs and will be sharing what FQHCs need to consider when developing a telehealth program, from selecting equipment to policy issues that need to be consider.
