SAE COVID-19 Series: Technology Practices and Resources

Today’s SAE CAREs (Clinical And Research Experts) Podcast is “SAE COVID-19 Series: Technology Practices and Resources”. It is the second podcast of our new podcast series, Going from Reactive to Proactive in Response to the Coronavirus Pandemic. This podcast addresses issues related to using technology to provide behavioral health services. Issues discussed concern client access, staff home-based technology, development of policies and procedures, and choosing the right agency technology. This podcast provides information that enhances what already exists within your agency while expanding and stabilizing for the future. It is important to press “pause” on the frantic attempt to move a workforce to newly defined telemed services and asks the provider to think about sustainable systems, policies, and practices that can be implemented over the next few weeks and modified for future use.

SAE’s COVID-19 series of podcasts aims to pose thoughtful questions your practices should be thinking through, and provide short-term solutions and tools to help you accomplish your goals. Each podcast will include summaries of regulatory changes and links on SAE’s website to full text information and primary sources. They will also address self-care practices and topic-specific content. 

Our goal in this series of podcasts is two-fold. First, we want to give you the tools and resources that will enable you to contain and gain operational control during this national crisis and its impact that this pandemic has caused on your service delivery system. Second, we want to offer specific stabilization strategies that you can deploy not only to gain control during the crisis but also to protect, implement and sustain course corrective adaptive interventions that meet the needs of the consumers you serve and the clinical, supervisory and safety needs of your staff.
