The Department of Health and Human Services is accepting registrations for its Telemedicine Hack, a free 10-week learning community to accelerate telemedicine implementation for ambulatory providers. Beginning July 22, the partnership with the ECHO Institute at the University of New Mexico will provide inter-session, peer-to-peer learning facilitated via virtual discussion boards and ad hoc interest groups. HHS’ Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response also will host a July 28 webinar on the use of telemedicine in alternative care sites. Speakers will discuss operations, management and lessons learned from using telemedicine in these settings. Register here
