The Care Transformation Collaborative of Rhode Island (CTC-RI)/PCMH Kids) has selected 21 practice sites/organizations to participate in the 12 month Learning Collaborative: “Using Technology to Improve Care for Patients with Chronic Conditions”. The goal of the initiative is to help primary care practices expand the use of technology to help people better manage their chronic conditions and enable practices to further physical distancing measures, reduce unnecessary in-person visits, and thereby mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Practices participating in the learning collaborative are eligible to receive: a) an infrastructure payment ($15,000.00 per practice site) and b) an incentive payment $7,000 per practice site for single practice applications or $5,000.00 per practice site for multi-site applications.
The Telehealth Learning Collaborative is financially supported through two sources: the infrastructure payment is supported through CARES Act funding and the technical quality improvement support and incentive payments, are supported through UnitedHealthcare.
The mission of the Care Transformation Collaborative of Rhode Island is to lead the transformation of primary care in Rhode Island in the context of an integrated health care system; and to improve the quality of care, the patient experience of care, the affordability of care, and the health of the populations we serve.
