TELEHEALTH AND SBHCS REPORT

In collaboration with Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health, the New York School-Based Health Foundation released the 2020 report, Caring for New York's School Children: The Potential of Telehealth.

The report examines the transition to telehealth in New York State's SBHCs, anticipates the future outlook for telehealth in SBHCs, and identifies areas of opportunity for utilizing telehealth in SBHCs. Thanks to a team of 5 student consultants at the Mailman School, 19 key stakeholders were interviewed for input, including 9 SBHCs in New York; SBHC experts from Connecticut, North Carolina, and Colorado; the New York City Department of Education; Greater New York Hospital Association (GNYHA); Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS); Community Health Care Association of New York State (CHCANYS); and the national School Based Health Alliance.

Equitable Telehealth Access: Lessons Learned from Patient Navigation
Presented by the New York Health Foundation
WHEN: Thursday September 29th, 12-1 PM ET

New York State saw exponential increases in telehealth use during the COVID-19 pandemic. Although the surge in use has tapered off as facilities reopen, telehealth is here to stay as an option for patients. Telehealth holds promise to expand access to care, yet its uneven use over the course of the pandemic has exacerbated health care disparities, rather than reducing them. People of color, people with low income, those who speak a primary language other than English, older adults, and rural residents face numerous barriers to telehealth use.

Safety-net providers across New York City have created telehealth navigation models, in which community health workers and peer-support specialists conduct outreach and assistance tailored to patients’ care plans, needs, preferences, and digital and health literacy levels. These telehealth models offer replicable strategies to support marginalized patients with complex health needs in accessing care remotely.

Please join the NY Health Foundation for an online discussion with Kenan Katranji, Senior Director of Digital Health, NYC Health + Hospitals; Christopher Joseph, Executive Director, EngageWell IPA; and Urvashi Pandya, Director of Programs, AIRnyc. The panelists will share their experiences with implementing telehealth navigation programs in diverse health care settings and their insights on how and when telehealth can meet patient and provider needs.
