HHS Telemedicine Hack

A 10-week learning community to accelerate telemedicine implementation for ambulatory providers

Wednesdays, July 22—Sept 23, 12-1PM ET

Although telemedicine use has grown exponentially during the COVID-19 pandemic, many ambulatory providers still lack the knowledge and skills needed to implement video-based telemedicine into their practices.

To support wide adoption of telemedicine, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response is partnering with the ECHO Institute at the University of New Mexico and the Public Health Foundation’s TRAIN Learning Network to deliver a 10-week, virtual peer-to-peer learning community called Telemedicine Hack.

Key components of Telemedicine Hack

  • Five teleECHO sessions
  • Five virtual “office hour” discussion panels
  • Virtual discussion boards and ad hoc interest groups
  • CME/CEU credits are available for attending, at no cost to participants

Who should attend?

All ambulatory providers (e.g., primary care, surgical, rural/urban, dental, mental health, solo practitioners)
