Telehealth Hack Webinar Series-Session 2, January 27th

NCTRC Telehealth Hack - Post-Acute Care and Long Term Care Facility
Pandemic Response Best Practices and Lessons Learned

Optimal processes for the prevention and treatment of COVID-19 infections and outbreaks in post-acute and long-term care (PA/LTC) facilities has proven to be one of the most critical challenges of the COVID-19 era. High risk populations, especially older adults, who are facility-dwelling have accounted for approximately 25-40% of all mortality in the United States since March 2020. Telehealth services and technologies can serve as key tools to address this major challenge. This webinar reviews the principles and practices of the Geriatric Engagement and Resource Integration for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Facilities (GERI-PaL) program, a collaborative and interprofessional telehealth endeavor serving these high-risk populations in central Virginia.

Using Social and Economic Barriers to Health Data to Inform Programming

When we examine data from social needs screening, what does it tell us? The table above shows the number of social needs by age category in Southwestern Colorado. The graph illustrates that patients between the ages of 19- 64 have more needs on average than both younger and older age groups. The 19-21 year-old group reports the most needs. What do these numbers mean for our region? How can we think about these numbers to support our organizations that are working with these age groups and to create additional needed programs for our community members? All data can be limited by factors like sample size, characteristics of the populations being screened, and lack of context. Yet data can tell us a story about the community members who we serve in our region. We are looking forward to listening to the stories that data from screenings tell us and to collaborating with our community partners to address social and economic barriers to health in Southwestern Colorado.
