ASTHO Telehealth Resource Guide

In December 2016, the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) released a Telehealth Resource Guide that explains the practice of telemedicine and gives an overview of telehealth programs for seven different states including Hawaii. The guide highlights the progress made and challenges faced in each of these states and points out some potential next steps. The guide also contains practical information such as a glossary of telehealth terms and links to information on telehealth legislation and Telehealth Resource Centers for each region. A number of resources that summarize the growing evidence for telehealth as an effective manner of delivering healthcare are also included. This resource guide also contains information on topics such as reimbursement, Medicaid and Medicare coverage, and licensure requirements.
