About the Event:
As COVID-19 infections reach the 6 month and 6 million infected mark in the United States, behavioral health organizations are finding themselves having to move beyond rapid infectious disease preparations and on to a "next phase" of care. This webinar explored the ongoing approaches to care and how they are evolving to best meet the needs. From telehealth to revenue cycle concerns, remote supervision to resuming in-person treatment, balancing staff resilience and second wave safety concerns, this is a transitional phase in what appears will be a lengthy pandemic experience for all of us.
1) Describe where your organization is now in a COVID trajectory and planning process moving forward.
2) Identify best practice approaches to delivering telehealth services.
3) Identify methods to continue to maintain staff resilience as the pandemic progresses.
