The Demand for Telehealth 
More than ever, telehealth is providing U.S. community health centers and other primary care providers the opportunity to extend care to patients most affected by a lack of access to high quality services. COVID-19 created both a crisis and an opportunity to re-examine the strategy for primary health care delivery that can increase health equity for all populations. A telehealth strategy is critical for the future of care delivery that works for all patients and providers.
