AHA’s advancing health podcast: Using telehealth to address behavioral issues
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, many hospitals and health systems are expanding telehealth services. In addition, addressing mental health needs during this crisis is becoming increasingly important.
In part one of this AHA Advancing Health podcast, Jay Bhatt, D.O., senior vice president and chief medical officer of the AHA, discusses the value of telehealth to address behavioral health issues and poses questions for leadership teams with Shantanu Agrawal, M.D., president and CEO of the National Quality Forum, and Arpan Waghray, M.D., executive medical director for behavioral medicine at Swedish Health Services in Seattle and chief medical officer at Well Being Trust.
The AHA and NQF partnered to create Redesigning Care: A How-To Guide for Telebehavioral Health.
