Access for all clients

We conceptualize the measurement and evaluation of access broadly. Access to telehealth is not limited to technology and internet, although both are vital to telehealth use. We structured the PACE Framework domain of Access to align with occupational therapy’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (AOTA, 2020b). Telehealth research, practice, and policy should reflect diversity in race, ethnicity, gender, age, socio-economic status, geography, and other demographics; promote occupational justice; and be client-centered.
