In response to the pandemic, states rapidly established new funding mechanisms and implemented emergency regulations, many of which focused on telehealth. Policies that expanded the use of telehealth have had a significant and largely positive impact on children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN) and their families, but this shift has also highlighted disparities. Many low-income and rural families lack broadband access, the required technologies, safe locations to conduct private visits, or training on how to request or use telehealth.
Speakers will discuss their experiences with how telehealth flexibilities have affected CYSHCN, families, providers, and health systems. They will reflect on what is important to retain and how to apply lessons learned moving forward. We suggest attendees read the report COVID-19 Policy Flexibilities Affecting Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs prior to the event. Audience Q&A is highly encouraged.
