Telemedicine Workgroup

The Alaska Medicaid Redesign Telehealth Stakeholder Workgroup was comprised of 17 members representing hospitals, private practice physicians, provider organizations, tribal health organizations, and fire fighters. The workgroup met several times during Fiscal Year 2017 to discuss current telehealth capabilities, potential areas for expansion of telehealth services and barriers inhibiting expansion. The workgroup submitted their report to the Department in August 2017. As a result of their discussions, the workgroup report includes ten recommendations for addressing the barriers and challenges to expanding telehealth options throughout the state. The department will be analyzing the workgroup’s recommendations and developing strategies for moving forward. The workgroup report and the department’s response will be included in the department’s annual report on Medicaid redesign efforts that will be released in November 2017.
