The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) and ASPR TRACIE are hosting a webinar on using telemedicine in alternate care sites (ACS). ACS are one of many alternate care strategies intended to provide additional hospital surge capacity and capability. In addition to being used by outpatient providers, telemedicine plays an integral role in ACS. The COVID-19 pandemic and the associated community mitigation efforts enacted have altered the delivery of and access to healthcare across the country. Healthcare providers are looking for ways to deliver patient care to accommodate social distancing and community mitigation measures.
