Telehealth in Community Clinics: Three Case Studies in Implementation
In 2007, the California HealthCare Foundation (CHCF) funded the Telemedicine to Improve Access & Efficiency in California Clinic Networks project to explore the role telehealth could play in improving specialty care access for patients of community health centers (CHCs). The case study report highlights and compares the experiences of each of the three CHCs as they planned and implemented their telehealth programs; this case study report addresses facilitators and barriers to program implementation and operation, patient and provider satisfaction, and key lessons learned.
