Subject: In Case You Missed It: Our Suite of Telehealth and Privacy Resources

In Case You Missed It:

Check out our Telehealth and Privacy Resources

Providers of substance use disorder (SUD) and mental health services have worked rapidly to make sure their patients have access to the care they need during the COVID-19 pandemic and after, including by offering more services through telehealth. As part of this rapid transition, both patients and providers express concerns about maintaining privacy during virtual visits.

These resources were created by the CoE-PHI and contain steps for patients and providers to protect privacy while providing, or in receipt of remote SUD and mental health treatment.  All three of these resources are available in English and Spanish languages.
