Call for Applications: Telehealth Collaborative
The EMS for Children Innovation and Improvement Center Telehealth Collaborative will launch in January 2021 and continue through June 30th, 2021. The primary purpose of this collaborative is to evaluate the impact of public health crises on children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN) and children with behavioral health emergencies, assess telehealth capacities, and provide guidance and support to improve access to emergency pediatric services particularly in rural, tribal, and territorial areas. Participating states/ territories will be eligible for additional funding to support implementation efforts. Participating teams will:
- Identify at least three challenges facing these vulnerable populations due to public health crises
- Complete an environmental scan of the state/territory infrastructure to support the use of telehealth in the target population
- Develop a strategic plan for the implementation of telehealth services for the target population
