HHS Telemedicine Hack

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

Five teleECHO sessions on key topics (e.g., workflows, documentation, reimbursement) highlighting best practices and case studies from the field.

Key components of Telemedicine Hack include:

  • Five virtual “office hour” discussion panels with case presenters, government agencies, topical experts, and stakeholder associations responding to your questions
  • Inter-session peer-to-peer learning facilitated via virtual discussion boards and ad hoc interest groups

CME/CEU credits are available for attending, at no cost to participants

There is no cost to join the Telemedicine Hack initiative. All ambulatory providers (e.g., primary care, surgical, rural/urban, dental, mental health, solo practitioners) are invited to participate.

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.
