Nurse Triage Line Project October Report

Staff: Sara Rubin

The Nurse Triage Line (NTL) Workgroup has reviewed a new NACCHO factsheet that summarizes the workgroup’s role in the project. Additionally, the workgroup has also reviewed a Nurse Triage Line issue brief document that summarizes the entire project and how local health departments can become more engaged in NTL-related efforts. The NTL Communications Team is still considering a potential name change for the project and developing a communications strategy. Core project team staff are planning a site visit to United Healthcare’s nurse call center in Minneapolis in December.
