Before the official launch, each team will complete an Environmental Scan. The purpose of this environmental scan is to 1) conduct a baseline assessment of your state partnership program’s current telehealth work and 2) to inform us, the collaborative administrative team, of the current telehealth work at your state/ territory so that we can ensure the activities of this collaborative complement ongoing efforts and are appropriate for your state/ territory's level of telehealth so that this collaborative is a valuable use of your time.
