In summer of 2020, The Care Transformation Collaborative of RI (CTC-RI/PCMH Kids) launched a three-phase project funded through UnitedHealthcare and Cares Act Funding. Project goals are:
1) Provide primary care team with best practice sharing opportunities to support effective, safe and efficient telehealth services looking at practice/staff/patient experiences, clinical outcomes, access to care and utilization;
2) Help inform RI health care policy on primary care practice/patient telehealth needs
The project consists of three phases; to learn more about each phase follow the links below:
A Planning Committee (including Northeast Telehealth Resource Center representation) helped develop 1) the Primary Care Telehealth Practice Assessment and Patient Needs Survey and 2) the 6-month educational webinar series based on review of practice and patient needs assessment findings and recommendations.
