The Telehealth Advantage for Counties 

Telehealth continues to emerge as a cost-saving, outcomes-improving technology for private sector organizations - but can counties expect to reap the same rewards?

Some counties nationwide are already discovering the positive impact telehealth services can have on their county:

  • More timely access to care at a time of increased demand for services
  • Expansion of services to rural and other previously undeserved areas
  • Support and promote early detection of mental health symptoms, or even predict the onset of mental illness
  • More effective use of clinical resources
  • Cost savings and risk reduction from providing services to persons in the most appropriate care settings

Just as telling are examples of telehealth engagement with complex populations, such as those with mental health or substance use disorders who are justice-involved, persons using emergency departments as their only care resource, or those experiencing a crisis within the community.

View the on-demand webinar “The Telehealth Advantage for Counties,” presented by NACo, NACBHDD and their partners at Netsmart.
