Virtual Care and Patient Self-Monitoring Webinar Wraps up Telehealth Webinar Series

  • 13 Jul 2021

On June 29, CTC-RI hosted our final webinar in the “Advancing Team-Based Telehealth in RI” series. The most recent webinar, “Virtual Care & Patient Self-Monitoring Tools– Strategies for RI Adult Primary Care Practices” featured speakers Sarah Reinstein MPH and Carol Falcone NCM from East Bay Community Action and Lauren Capizzo MPH and Brenda Jenkins RN CDOE from Healthcentric Advisors. The first part of the webinar focused on EBCAP’s experience piloting the National Association of Community Health Center’s “Leading Change: Transforming At-Home Care” program. Following EBCAP’s presentation, Healthcentric Advisors shared strategies for engaging high-risk patients in RPM and presented some data from RI practices using the PRiSM platform.

The series was funded by UnitedHealthcare and authorized CARES Act funding and consisted of 7 webinars addressing a range of topics to help primary care practices implement best practices in telehealth and remote patient monitoring. In total, the 7-part series reached 398 attendees. 83% of participants said that they’d be able to use the information from the webinar within the next 6 months, and 89% rated the relevance of the session in the RI environment as “good” or “excellent.”

CTC-RI sends a big thanks to UnitedHealthcare for funding this series along with CARES Act funding, as well as to all of our speakers and panelists. In addition, a special thanks to the Northeast Telehealth Resource Center (NETRC) for their technical assistance as well as to our Core Telehealth Planning Committee for being instrumental in planning the series.
