Learning in Action: Implementing a Primary Care Telehealth Response During COVID-19

During this course, attendees learn how the Care Transformation Collaborative of Rhode Island (CTC-RI) helped primary care practices respond to telehealth implementation challenges through a three-pronged “learning in action” approach. Areas of focus include development and implementation of needs assessment surveys; utilization of results to inform telehealth webinar topics that align with proposed PCMH/PCSP Telehealth Distinction Requirements; and development and implementation of a primary care 12-month telehealth learning collaborative that let practices test/use telehealth services to improve care for patients with chronic conditions. Hear from a primary care practice that participated in this initiative and get sample tools and resources to apply in your primary care practice setting.
