Proven Practices and Models
As you create or expand your telehealth program, you may want to consider what others have done, and what the experts recommend for your stage in development. The gpTRAC Toolkit provides examples and illustrations that can help you find the right path—and avoid costly and time-consuming errors.
In a collaborative effort, Telligen and gpTRAC partnered in the development of a helpful and informational telehealth resource. It was specifically developed for use in Iowa, but has a great deal of information that is applicable across all states. You can find this resource here: Telehealth Start-Up and Resource Guide
