Project Overview
This project focused on developing and implementing a regionalized system of pediatric emergency care in rural western Pennsylvania. Primary foci of this project included: (1) building upon existing collaborations of rural community health providers and a major pediatric academic referral center to formalize transfer processes; and (2) integrating telemedicine in the emergency departments in participating hospitals to assure that children in the proposed rural communities had access to essential pediatric resources when needed.
