The “Supporting Providers and Families to Access Telehealth and Distant Care Services for Pediatric Care” project is a grant between the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) in the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). The goal of this grant is to support telehealth access and infrastructure for the provision of comprehensive care to children and adolescents, including children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN) and other vulnerable pediatric populations, utilizing a medical home approach during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

The purpose of this stipend program is to offer $5,000 to community-based practices that serve rural areas (with an emphasis on underserved populations in those areas) and are new to telehealth implementation. The stipend will support practices with the implementation of telehealth and distance care through participation in a virtual learning community. Awardees will participate in the program from November 2020- April 2021. Training and technical support will be provided by the AAP throughout the duration of the program. Additional partners, including the National Rural Health Association (NRHA) and a telehealth consultant, will also be available to provide technical assistance and support to participating practices.
