Tell Congress to Support RTs as Telehealth Practitioners
Virtual Lobby Week April 11–May 2, 2018
This year, our campaign will focus on a Telehealth Pilot that focuses on Respiratory Therapists as telehealth practitioners, and we need your help in making our voice heard. The pilot will give us the chance to gather information on both the health impact and costs associated with respiratory therapists as telehealth practitioners. It will also help demonstrate the expertise respiratory therapists bring to the health care system and their patients. Learn more about the pilot by reviewing the proposed specifications found on the AARC Lobby website.
The AARC Virtual Lobby Campaign webpage (http://c.aarc.org/go/lobby18) is now live. Check out the site for resources and access to our Phone2Actioncommunication platform. Send your senators and representatives messages about why you feel this pilot program is important to the respiratory profession and patient care. As you help spread this message, please tag the AARC (@aarc_tweetsor @aarc.orgfor Facebook) and include #breathingmatters, and #aarclobbyin your posts. Read more.
