Libraries already provide many vital community services, but they also have a growing opportunity to help bridge gaps in unmet healthcare needs in their communities. This webinar aims to provide you with practical guidance and useful information to inspire innovation and experimentation with telehealth services. It can be challenging starting or growing a telehealth program, but by partnering with healthcare professionals and nonprofits, your organization does not have to take on telehealth alone.
Libraries and telehealth are at the forefront of closing the “healthcare gap” – that disastrous divide between individuals who have access to affordable, quality healthcare, and those who do not. Since libraries reach out and touch virtually everyone in their communities across the entire economic spectrum, it’s quite exciting to imagine telehealth capabilities at work. This webinar provides a foundation and the motivation to leverage telehealth, make an impact on the health of your community and engage in the fight to transform public health!
This concise presentation for libraries, their staffs and supporters:
- Summarizes benefits of libraries facilitating telehealth in their facilities
- Addresses effective telehealth needs analysis
- Advises how community leaders and partners can enhance telehealth
- Offers tips to uncovering and prioritizing funding resources

Saved from a stroke by telehealth, Craig Settles pays it forward by uniting community broadband teams and healthcare stakeholders through telehealth projects that transform healthcare delivery. Mr. Settles views telehealth as the "Killer App" that can close the digital divide because everyone experiences illness or cares for someone who is ill. And you cannot have telehealth without good broadband (highspeed Internet).
