Recorded Series: Navigating Telehealth for FQHCs During COVID-19

This is a private virtual training hosted by the Washington Association for Community Health (WACH) as a benefit for their members.

If you are not a member but interested in training on Telehealth, please review our Telehealth learning group or Contact Us.


Telehealth is an essential modality as community health centers respond to the COVID-19 public health emergency, both to support screening efforts and to enhance continued access to a range of critical health care services. 

Despite its many benefits, the adoption and/or expansion of telehealth raises a broad range of legal considerations. These can be exceptionally challenging to navigate, particularly in these unusual times when the applicable laws, regulations, and agency guidance change on a near-daily basis. 

With a focus on community health centers, this eight-part webinar series will provide an in-depth review of the key legal considerations applicable to telehealth, equipping the listener with the knowledge and tools to implement telehealth in a legally compliant manner.
