Access to Care
This project will test the Payer Readiness for Technology Implementation (P-RTI) assessment tool on the use of two patient-centered health technologies, telephonic and video counseling, for patients with substance use disorders.
The project will develop an Internet-accessed relational agent system, a human animation program that interacts with patients and integrates best practices from provider-patient communication theory, to deliver depression treatment to patients with congestive heart failure or chronic pulmonary disease and comorbid depression. The care will be delivered immediately following hospital discharge to improve the safety of care transitions.
This project tested a pediatric voice therapy telehealth system and found that it was feasible to implement and well accepted by children and their families.
