About the Course

Telehealth utilizes technology tools such as a cellphone or laptop to give patients and doctors the ability to support health care communication and services remotely. As a leading pioneer in the field of telehealth, UC Davis Health began offering telehealth services in 1992 and providing formal telehealth academic curriculum in 1999. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the field of telehealth has seen tremendous growth, with telehealth utilization increasing across all specialties and becoming even more accessible.

In the “Telehealth Best Practices and Uses” course, learners go beyond the foundational knowledge of technology tools employed and telehealth applications. Gain insight into the most effective practices in implementation, regulatory compliance and how to practice with a health equity lens.
