Your Telehealth Guide: Staffing
But finding qualified providers to staff your telehealth program?
That’s where the real challenge starts. With these three easy steps, your organization will be able to match the perfect fit for your needs.
Step 1: Define Your Area of Need
While many physicians are interested in working in telehealth, it’s important to gauge where your facility has the most immediate need.
Look for areas that a telehealth provider can fill a gap in your current range of care or lend a hand to physicians who may experience burnout.
Telehealth providers allow your current physicians the flexibility to take leave, continue their education, or offer consults in their specialties.
They also allow your facility access to providers in subspecialties that your patients might not have access to on a regular basis.
Step 2: Check Federal/Local Laws
Once you’ve identified where your areas of need are, your next step is to check both federal and local laws concerning telehealth.
From telepresenters, to licensure and even teleprescriptions, each state has different requirements for your physicians to follow.
Step 3: Vetting Your Candidate
Not only do you need to find a physician with the right background, you also need to ensure that they are tech-savvy enough to take part in your telehealth program.
Your ideal telehealth provider should understand how to use your Electronic Hospital Records system, have reliable, working internet, and be able to quickly troubleshoot should issues arise on the telehealth platform.
