As Illinois starts to recover from COVID-19 and move into phase 4, State Representative Sue Scherer of the 96th District is working on ways to bring telehealth to people in need. Scherer is pushing Senate Bill 1864, bipartisan legislation that gives expanded access to telehealth and mental health services in addition to proving eligibility for those services and making it easier. Scherer says this is important to her because so many people need help.
Scherer says telehealth has come a long way and is breaking down barriers.
While visiting hospitals, Scherer got experience working with telehealth systems.
