Remote Recruiting — Making it Work for Your Health Center 

A Message from our Senior Vice President

“We understand the difficulties our members are facing during these extraordinary times regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus).

CPG is in the process of developing new vendor contracts for telehealth services. Over the past few weeks, the world of telemedicine has evolved drastically—from being considered just an option to being implemented worldwide—primarily in response to reimbursement limits being lifted.

We are here and working on your behalf every day”

 – Richard Bryant

Developments in Telehealth

Covered in depth in some of our recent webinars, COVID-19 has led to changes in telehealth regulation. Medicare temporarily increased access to telehealth services to minimize interaction and exposure by expanding telehealth reimbursement to evaluation and management visits, mental health counseling, and preventative health screenings.

Transitioning Back to Work

Resources on Returning to Work

As we navigate through the reopening process, companies and facilities are working carefully to design safe and healthy workspaces for their employees. Some of OSHA’s guiding principles of reopening are social distancing, identification and isolation of sick employees, controls, and more. Our vendors, including WB Mason, Staples, and Hillrom/Welch-Allyn are supporting this transition by offering new products and exclusive deals.
