2) Help inform RI health care policy on primary care practice/patient telehealth needs
The project consists of three phases; to learn more about each phase follow the links below:
Phase 1: Practice Assessment/Patient Engagment Surveys

Phase 3: Learning Collaborative: "Using Technology to Improve Care for Patients with Chronic Conditions"
