Optimizing Telehealth is actually a webcast that is made available for CME and CE credit hours as a webinar with a live audience through the Telebehavioral Health Institute. The video and audio tracks are edited and re-formatted to video-stream through Facebook, LinkedIn and YouTube. That video stream is further edited into three audio podcasts to be disseminated as segments through the seven podcast stations linked below.
If you think that is involved, there’s more. The primary focus of Optimizing Telehealth is the 2017 competency framework published by the Coalition for Technology in Behavioral Science (CTiBS). For your very own copy, download the Interprofessional Framework for Telebehavioral Health Competencies – for free (flip to Table 1 for the competencies). You can thank many early telehealth industry leaders for this work, including the Host of Optimizing Telehealth, Dr. Marlene Maheu – a pioneer in the telehealth world since 1994. She is known as the God-Mother of Telehealth because her life’s work has been training clinicians in telehealth legal and ethical telehealth compliance worldwide. She and TBHI fund the Optimizing Telehealth program
