Telehealth in the setting of COVID-19 offers an essential solution for separating the sick and well. In this critical time, telehealth enables us to declutter waiting rooms, to provide ongoing monitoring for patients, and to reduce the exposure from ill persons with staff, other patients, and facilities. Telehealth is able not only to expand the reach of services to communities that have limited access, but also to minimize the exposure for both the health workers and patients who are at high risk for infection. Many clinics and medical offices already use these methods to triage and manage patients as part of usual practices. MAHEC is offering a free, region-wide ECHO (Extension in Community Healthcare Outcomes) to explore local ways to maximize the benefits of telehealth during the COVID-19 outbreak.

• Telehealth, Beyond the Basics  
• Virtual Visit Options
• Billing by Payer 
• Telehealth Platform Options

Management of the global pandemic COVID-19 is the utmost priority for providers on a local, national, and global level. As more cases of COVID-19 are identified in Western North Carolina, we aim to share clinical guidance and best practices among regional providers so that we can be as prepared as possible for our patients. MAHEC is offering a free, region-wide ECHO (Extension in Community Healthcare Outcomes) to promote discussion and best practices among local providers for the screening, diagnosis, and management of our patients with COVID-19 during this pandemic. Our goal during this series is to facilitate virtual case discussion among providers who are diagnosing and managing patients with COVID-19. We aim to complement the available updates from the NC DHHS, CDC, and other resources with region-specific data and clinical guidance for our WNC Providers. All WNC providers are welcome, and we will seek case presentations from those of you who have seen patients diagnosed with COVID-19.

Discussion topics will include: 
• Updates and Statistics re: Regional COVID-19 Cases in Western North Carolina
• Updates re: Clinical Workflows, Screening, and Triaging Patients
• Updates re: Testing Availability and Turnaround Time for Results
• Case Discussions
