Biden Administration Launches Pilot Program for COVID-19 Telehealth Care
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has launched the Home Test to Treat pilot program, which will enable people to receive free testing, consultation, and treatment for COVID via eMed telehealth services. The program will be administered by local and state officials in Berks County, Pennsylvania. The NIH said additional U.S. communities will be selected to participate in the pilot as determined by need, socioeconomic factors, and health care access, with the goal of providing the service to up to 100,000 people over the next 12 months. UMass Chan Medical School researchers will review the data from the pilot program to determine its impact on COVID-related care.
