Telehealth Implementation Playbook
Telemedicine can support physical distancing efforts and help ensure that care continues to be provided to those who need it most by triaging low-risk urgent care and follow up appointments, and maintaining continuity of care, especially for chronic disease management and behavioral health patients, who may require routine check-ins. The American Medical Association is committed to supporting and advocating for physicians and practices through the COVID-19 pandemic. For the latest information and updates on COVID-19 and the AMA’s physician resources, visit the COVID-19 Resource Center for Physicians. If you need to expedite the implementation of a telehealth solution in order to respond
to an emergency need, the American Medical Association also recommends visiting the AMA quick guide to telemedicine in practice resource and accessing the resources and tools created by The Telehealth Initiative, a collaborative effort between the Physicians Foundation, AMA, Texas Medical Association, Florida Medical Association, and Massachusetts Medical Society.
