The month of March 2022 brought us five Telehealth Tuesdays with topics running from TeleDentristy to Telehealth Governance.

In between, we covered the application of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs to telehealth, shone a light on tactics for clinician engagement, and took a trip back to March 2020, when Covid-19 became a reality and we launched Telehealth for 25 PCPs at a rural FQHC in 36 hours.

Enjoy your readings!

Who is Steering Your Telehealth Success?

Success requires leadership. Yet many telehealth programs run without anybody at the helm, leaving IT staff, nurses, physicians and schedulers to their own devices. This article covers the hallmarks of effective telehealth governance.
