Webinar 2: Leveraging Data to Drive Change in Telehealth Access Equity

Thursday, June 2, 3-4pm ET

Overview:
With the rapid increase in telehealth utilization in the spring of 2020, many health systems quickly deployed outpatient telehealth services in a matter of weeks. Two years later, outpatient telehealth remains a routine part of outpatient care delivery across the country. This rapid transformation left little time to design and tailor solutions to meet the needs of all patient populations, in some cases exacerbating access disparities which existed before the pandemic.

Dynamically understanding and addressing access barriers to telehealth services can support health system efforts to ensure equitable access to care for all patients. This workshop will highlight work at Johns Hopkins Medicine through the perspective of several health system collaborators and their approaches to identifying, collecting, and acting on metrics to understand telehealth’s impact on access to care for all patients.

Learning objectives:
• Define key measures to understand telehealth’s impact on equity
• Describe examples of one institution's efforts to track and assemble telehealth equity measures
• Understand various ways to act on telehealth equity data to improve access to care for marginalized communities
• Describe how to translate telehealth equity related data to regional and national advocacy efforts
