In March 2020, behavioral health and human services providers faced an enormous challenge. How would they create a virtual workplace in a matter of days and weeks? The complex IT issues alone were enormous, from ensuring staff had all the equipment needed to setting up telehealth solutions and communicating those to clients.
As the year wore on, other issues came to the front, from online meeting fatigue to new challenges in maintaining contact with clients and fellow staff members in an all-virtual setting.
Now, as communities reopen, providers are doing the hard work of preparing to return to the office. What lessons have they learned? What new tools and techniques from the pandemic are going to remain part of their care landscape?
Upon completion of this webinar, attendees will learn:
- What went well in the process of standing up remote operations, as well as what problems emerged — and how they were solved
- Issues that arose over months of remote operations, how staff stayed connected to patients and each other, and how business operations stayed on track
- What a return to regular operations looks like in terms of timetables, client engagement, and the adoption of new solutions
