Resource Type: 

This presentation (1:11:59 minutes) by Trudy Bearden discusses strategies to leverage telemedicine and virtual services to enhance access and improve health care delivery in the long-term services and supports settings. Facilitated by the Utah Geriatric Education Consortium partner, Comagine Health, this ECHO session includes a case study, ample opportunities for discussion, and must-know information and clarifications to ensure successful and sustained remote service delivery.

This session looks through the lens of the supporting role of the nurse in delivery of this modality of health care. By the end of the presentation, learners should be able to: (1) articulate the difference between telehealth and virtual services; (2) appreciate the full range of remote services for health care service delivery specific in the long-term services and supports (LTSS) setting; (3) outline the case for telehealth and virtual services to sustainably achieve the quadruple aim; and (4) embed improvement science in the telehealth journey. Gail Towsley provides a case presentation. Slides are available to download. Part of the Age-Friendly ECHO series.
