Telehealth and COVID-19 Fact Sheet
March 24, 2021
The onset of the spread of COVID-19 and the declaration of the pandemic in March 2020 spurred interest in implementing telehealth services. Telehealth is a viable and proven modality through which to provide healthcare services to patients. The ability for patients to stay in their homes to receive the services is all that more important during an infectious disease crisis when gathering in groups and being in close proximity to others can be detrimental.
State and federal requirements tied to the delivery of telehealth services have been revised or eased during the declared public health emergency (PHE) to allow for broader use of and access to telehealth. Because of the multiple changes to information over the past year, this fact sheet will provide brief overviews and links to sources with the latest information. Providers and other organizations involved in the delivery of telehealth services should keep abreast of the current requirements and waivers.
Note: The following is not a complete list of all available telehealth resources for COVID-19. This list will be updated as additional resources are identified.
