Congratulations to our 2024 Bree Collaborative award winner for Best Practices in Telehealth:

  • UW Medicine and UW Physicians
  • Kaiser Permenante

Using phone or video to access clinical care has increased significantly since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.  This rapid acceleration shows a knowledge gap among physical and behavioral health providers in when and how to use telehealth and highlights issues related to confidentiality and access.
