Topic:

This webinar will provide an overview of telehealth and the PASRR program and discusses the potential applications of telehealth to address barriers in PASRR. Although telehealth offers the opportunity to improve program efficiency and effectiveness, PASRR authorities must balance state-specific barriers, available resources, operational considerations, regulatory requirements, clinical quality, and budgetary limitations.
