Now Available: Telehealth Implementation Support Tool

With support from the Bureau of Justice Assistance via the Comprehensive Opioid, Stimulant, and Substance Abuse Program (COSSAP), RTI International developed an evidence-based, web-enabled telehealth implementation support tool (TIST) to support jails in implementing or expanding telehealth and other virtual services.

The TIST was developed using best practices in survey methodology and usability. Its content is based on findings from an environmental scan comprising a literature review and interviews with stakeholders—jail staff, administrators, and research partners who have implemented virtual services in jails.

Personnel can follow the tips to maximize and improve access to health care services for justice-involved people while minimizing the burden and disruption to jails and off-site providers associated with service delivery.
