While it wasn’t uncommon for Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) to offer some form of telehealth prior to the spring of 2020, the arrival of COVID-19 spurred many FQHCs to expand telehealth services to ensure continued access to care for their historically underserved patient populations.

Now that telehealth and virtual care have become integrated into FQHC service delivery models, many FQHCs who had to quickly launch telehealth services in response to the pandemic are revisiting their original strategies and delivery systems and planning for long-term sustainability. Federal funding opportunities, including the Optimizing Virtual Care Grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration, are an important part of that planning process.

During the webinar, Maureen Meyer, consultant for Amwell’s Grants & Public Funding Program, discussed upcoming funding opportunities and grant guidelines specifically tailored for FQHCs. Watch the webinar to learn about:

  • The experience and response of FQHCs during the pandemic
  • Cutting-edge telehealth solutions that FQHCs are leveraging today to address health disparities and social determinants of health
  • Best practices on how FQHCs can develop an innovative telehealth strategy to deliver quality healthcare to their patient population
  • Requirements of the Optimizing Virtual Care Grant and application success strategies

“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.”
