Telehealth in a Street Homeless Clinic: Improving Care and Access

Telehealth has the potential for increasing access to healthcare services and improve health outcomes. The lack of phone or internet access should not be a barrier for this type of access. Telehealth technologies should be imbedded into free and charitable clinics that are providing services to these individuals. This type of access can expand services to specialists and mental health providers. This presentation will discuss how this technology was leveraged with a free clinic caring for those living in homeless. Presenters will review strategies for implementing this type of program as well as programmatic outcomes.
