We just released our 2021 Annual Report, which offers a look at how the Care Transformation Collaborative of Rhode Island (CTC-RI) and PCMH Kids (a division of CTC-RI) stepped up to support primary care practices as they adjusted to caring for patients and families amid the continuing COVID-19 pandemic. RI families and the healthcare system have faced enormous stressors during the past two years. Through collaboration and problem solving, we’re helping practices strengthen their capacity to improve health in RI.
CTC-RI and PCMH Kids have leaned on our strong collaboration with the health plans, practices, systems of care, OHIC and EOHHS to help practices:
- Secure $7.3 million in Pediatric Relief dollars
- Implement and scale effective telehealth
- Get routine immunizations and well-visits back on track
Now that we’re all learning to live with COVID-19, CTC-RI and PCMH Kids have shifted our focus to activities that can help practices weather storms more effectively. We’re helping practices to integrate behavioral health into primary care, strengthen our workforce by including community health workers on the care team, and implement evidence-based practices to support children, families and communities.
Thank you to our dedicated healthcare professionals. Your tireless and steadfast work has made a real difference in the lives of Rhode Islanders. Together, we are building a future focused on sustainable primary care practices that support our neighbors and communities.
