ABSTRACT

Case for a Telemedicine Coordinator: Lessons Learned from the Sustainable Models of Telemedicine in the Safety Net Initiative   [open html - 0B]

From the Description: "This brief report offers lessons learned about telemedicine staffing and the coordinator role from the experience of nine community health centers in California that participated in the Sustainable Models of Telehealth in the Safety Net (SMTSN) initiative, which was funded by the California Health Care Foundation. As part of the SMTSN initiative, which aimed to support community health centers in increasing telemedicine volume, most participating health centers hired telemedicine coordinators or maintained someone in a coordinator role. The health centers tailored the coordinator role to what was needed based on each center's unique staffing and telemedicine models. Experiences with the coordinator role might be informative for health care settings that are planning for or currently implementing clinic-based telemedicine programs."
