Telehealth Learning Collaborative to Kick-off Feb. 10

  • 07 Feb 2021

Planning is underway for the February 10 kick-off of the CTC-RI / PCMH Kids Telehealth Learning Collaborative, “Using Technology to Improve Care for Patients with Chronic Conditions.” Dr. Lisa Levine of The MAVEN Project, a telehealth nonprofit dedicated to increasing access to comprehensive care for vulnerable populations, will deliver the keynote address.

20 practices — 10 pediatric, 9 adult and 2 family — will participate in the year-long collaborative. Practices will work with CTC-RI practice facilitators and staff from the Northeast Telehealth Resource Center to plan and implement a telehealth project focused on a specific chronic condition. A wide range of conditions will be represented in the collaborative including heart failure, diabetes, asthma, anxiety, depression, and hypertension. A full list of practices and chronic conditions can be accessed here. This learning collaborative has been funded by UnitedHealthcare and authorized CARES Act funding.
