Webinar recording now available for network providers on how to leverage telehealth to care for Behavioral Health patients during COVID-19 and beyond
Empire BlueCross BlueShield hosted a provider webinar to assist Behavioral Health providers in maximizing the telehealth experience.
The webinar recording for How to leverage telehealth to care for Behavioral Health patients during COVID-19 and beyond is now available.
The psychological effects of COVID-19 reach far beyond those who have fallen ill with COVID-19 or lost a loved one to the virus. The need for behavioral health services will increase due to the fear and life-altering changes the pandemic has created. And for those who are already in treatment for behavioral health or other medical conditions, those appointments have been interrupted or even discontinued due to the pandemic.
Using telehealth can be a better way to continue caring for your patients or help patients access care, while promoting social distancing.
During the webinar recording, you’ll hear about:
- The impact of COVID-19 on behavioral health in general and within at-risk populations
- Lessons learned from past epidemics and quarantines
- Best practices for caring for behavioral health patients virtually
- Telehealth 101 tips for providers looking to get started
Providers of all specialties are invited to attend this webinar, which places emphasis on leveraging telehealth for behavioral health services.
