Description

Medical and behavioral professionals often wonder which areas of telehealth are the most likely to increase and which are also expected to proliferate in the next few years. Those predictions are as easy as connecting the dots.

  • For decades, the telehealth community of researchers has been working with technology companies to develop safe and reliable tools for patients with chronic medical conditions can stay at home and yet, get comparable or perhaps better care in person.
  • Five chronic conditions have been identified: cancer, cardiovascular disease, psychiatry, diabetes, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
  • Patients with these conditions are also most likely to be Medicare beneficiaries, where telehealth reimbursement is growing more rapidly than any other reimbursement source nationwide.
  • Medicare reimbursement is now officially approved permanently for behavioral health care.

Designed for practitioners interested in serving Medicare and other COPD patients with the latest in effective and reimbursable telehealth strategies, this introductory learning activity is a broad yet practical introduction to evidence-based primary care telehealth for COPD. Telehealth program planning, implementation, and management steps are illustrated using case-based learning to offer:

  • Evidence-based telehealth COPD treatment protocols
  • Telehealth program iteration and program workflows
  • Implementation challenges and solutions
  • Technology vendor selection
  • COPD assessment through video conferencing
  • Roles for telebehavioral staff
  • Telehealth best practices

Although designed for medical professionals considering COPD telehealth and telemedicine expansion, this program can also be relevant to behavioral professionals seeking new telehealth opportunities in primary care settings. Behavioral professionals are invited to participate to gain an overview of telehealth primary care teams, behavioral professional roles, and the evidence-based models for collaboration when treating COPD using an integrative model.
