A Practical Guide to Telehealth: Implementing Telehealth in Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Settings (PALTC)

The expanding senior population, shortages of providers, and skyrocketing costs will push our healthcare system to the breaking point. With the rise of telehealth, we have an extraordinary opportunity to build a more sustainable and more effective healthcare future.
