CCHP Fact Sheets

Created by the Center for Connected Health Policy

CCHP produces fact sheets on important proposed legislation and policy changes, key research reports, and other policy points that impact telehealth’s use. Fact sheets on pending bills include an overview of the bill, comparisons of the bill’s key points against existing law if applicable, and an analysis of the bill’s potential impacts on telehealth use. CCHP’s infographics display often complex telehealth policy information in an easy to read graphic format.
