Using technology to administer healthcare is not a new practice: organizations have been doing it for years. In a rural and aging state such as Maine, one would think that behavioral healthcare providers and consumers would be power-users. But are they?
Please join the Maine Behavioral Healthcare Workforce Development Collaborative (MBHWDC) on Friday September 8, 2017, for a panel discussion designed to explain ways in which telehealth is being used in Maine. The discussion will include experiences and issues at hand, and what opportunities exist for further development and utilization. We’ll look at implications for the workforce including licensure and HIPAA compliance, the delivery of care, and how some colleges and universities are preparing their students for a more virtual practice.
