Telehealth Learning Collaborative Meeting Focuses on Using Community Partnerships to Reach Vulnerable Populations

  • 12 Aug 2021

On August 18, the Telehealth Learning Collaborative, ‘Using Technology to Improve Care for Patients with Chronic Conditions’, is coming together for a 3rd learning collaborative meeting. The 21 participating practices will have the opportunity to hear a presentation from Andreina Sanabria, MHA of Tu Salud 24, a Latino-led organization working to address challenges in healthcare equity for Hispanic communities. The Tu Salud 24 presentation and discussion will focus on strategies for providing telehealth services to Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking patients.

After the presentation, some of the practices will share their progress with their learning collaborative projects. Each practice is working on a project that will improve the delivery of telehealth to their patients. A few of the highlighted projects will include: use of apps to monitor and engage children at risk for obesity and diabetes, use of RPM technology to provide real-time data on HTN and other chronic conditions, and partnerships with community organizations to address social determinants of health. Thank you to UnitedHealthcare and authorized CARES Act funds for funding this learning collaborative!
