NH TELEHEALTH ALLIANCE
Advancing telehealth policies for a healthier tomorrow.
Telehealth policy has progressed in NH, driven by technological advances and workforce short falls. The COVID-19 pandemic brought the need to rapidly alter care and accelerate changes to regulation, consumer engagement and payment systems. Measurable progress was made with the enactment of telehealth legislation (HB 1623) in NH in July of 2020.
The Alliance seeks to support a well-considered and robust telehealth industry in NH. This effort welcomes healthcare providers, technology providers and developers, advocacy and consumer organizations to play a significant role. Efforts informed by the Alliance will aim to ensure better access and cost-effective benefits of this modern healthcare structure based on telehealth services.
