CMS Releases Telehealth Toolkits

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) today released two comprehensive toolkits on telehealth–one specific to general practitioners, and one for providers treating patients with end-stage renal disease (ESRD). Each toolkit contains links to help providers learn about the general concept of telehealth, choose telemedicine vendors, initiate a telemedicine program, monitor patients remotely, and develop documentation tools. Toolkits also provide information on temporary virtual services that could be used to treat patients during this specific period of time.
