It was a great way to do a presentation.  I enjoyed it!

I have been wanting to start support groups with telehealth for the last couple of years.   I believe it would be a great service to our families who get little support in rural communities.

Subject: update on telehealth webinar


I attended the HRSA Telehealth webinar today.  Did anyone else?  If so,
please share your thoughts!


I was impressed with "webinar" technology.....(that was my first
exposure to it) and I enjoyed the review of information.  There are
numerous resources out there!  And, I had several ideas for states in
the Heartland......  J....(see below).


If you want to view the presentation, go to:


If you need a log-in for AHRQ Health IT website, send an email to:

Ideas that I came up with while listening:


*         How can the NBS Disaster Prep project tap into our extensive
telehealth infrastructure in the region?  

*         One use of telehealth technology is the use of interpretive
services (sign language, foreign language)

*         Patient information kiosks---how cool would that be for family
health history or newborn screening????

*         Regional support groups



Have a great weekend!
