How to Effectively Implement Telebehavioral Health in Primary Care – A Dialogue with Experts
Thursday, June 15, 2017 | 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM ET
Implementing telebehavioral health has the potential to connect individuals to behavioral health services in a way that is convenient, efficient and secure. But how do you make the most of telebehavioral health for integrated primary and behavioral health care and how can you implement technology in a way that eases, not adds to, staff workload? Join this interactive webinar to ask subject matter experts about the key elements of successful telebehavioral implementation and learn about practical tools for how to build capacity for telebehavioral health in integrated primary and behavioral health care settings. Get a brief overview of the basics of telebehavioral health and then dive into discussion on topics such as: how telehealth technology impacts staff and specific roles or responsibilities (on-site and distance-based staff), how to sustainably finance telehealth technology, implications for practicing across state lines, considerations for developing operational and procedural manuals, specific components of telehealth for mental health and substance use disorder treatment programs.
To get the ball rolling, organizers are taking your questions about telebehavioral health implementation in advance – many will be discussed during the webinar. Please submit your questions by emailing Roara Michael at RoaraM@thenationalcouncil.org. You may also ask questions on the webinar.
