The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recently released application guidance for the 2021 HRSA Rural Communities Opioid Response Program – Implementation. While not a telehealth-specific grant, this funding program is an ideal opportunity for healthcare organizations to secure funding for telehealth hardware and software used to reduce the morbidity and mortality of substance use disorder in high-risk rural communities.

Applications are due on March 12, 2021, so don’t wait to begin preparing your submission.

During the webinar, grant experts Angela Connor, MA, Director of Grants & Public Funding for Amwell, and Maureen Meyer, MBA, GPC, Consultant for Amwell, discussed the 2021 HRSA Rural Communities Opioid Response Program – Implementation, including a brief overview and Q&A.

“Working with Amwell allowed us to launch Connect Care quickly, with a user interface that is easy for our patients to navigate. Support from the Amwell Medical Group also gave us the ability to provide 24/7/365 care for patients right out of the gate, and continues to ensure our service is always available with a wait time of five minutes or less. We appreciate the support and ongoing innovation that working with Amwell provides for our product.”

“Amwell’s platform is so easy for families and providers to use; it was a natural fit for Nemours.”

“Nemours puts patients and families at the center of everything we do, so as we started to think about providing care virtually it was absolutely essential that we still be able to deliver that type of patient and family-centered care. Amwell’s platform is so easy for families and providers to use; it was a natural fit for Nemours. Amwell continues to be the innovative leader in the telehealth space and continues to adopt to our changing needs.”
