Webinar 4: Tackling the Digital Divide: AMCs' Strategies to Improve Telehealth Access and Equity

Wednesday, September 14, 2-3pm ET

Academic health systems are integrating telehealth to meet organizational priorities, patient demand, and as a way to improve access to care for many patient populations. Targeted efforts that focus on ensuring access to care via telehealth for under-resourced communities are essential to better address patients’ needs during the COVID pandemic, and to support more equitable outcomes in the future. This webinar will highlight specific efforts that health systems are taking to eliminate the digital divide such as implementing digital health navigators, screening for the digital divide, and establishing community partnerships to support the development of digital literacy skills. Strategic efforts like these are critical to ensuring that all patients have the necessary broadband and internet access, device access, and digital literacy skills and to narrow today’s existing digital divide.

Learning objectives:
• Define the digital divide and its impact on health care access and equity, and the role of health systems in addressing it
• Understand approaches and strategies for narrowing the digital divide at specific health systems, and how they can be generalizable to others
• Describe engagement approaches to ensure community and patient involvement in developing solutions to improve telehealth access and equity
