The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Division for Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention (DHDSP) is identifying and evaluating health systems or healthcare providers using telehealth and virtual services to deliver evidence-based interventions for the prevention and management of cardiovascular disease, including hypertension. Three health systems will be identified to undergo rigorous evaluations.
Health System Role in the Telehealth Evaluation
- Selected health systems will collaborate with CDC for about 2 years during the evaluation and will receive an evaluation report assessing telehealth strategy implementation and sustainability.
- Health systems will meet regularly with CDC, host CDC for a virtual site visit, and provide CDC with patient- and system level data for the evaluation.
- Selected health systems will receive an honorarium for providing patient- and systems-level data for evaluation.
If you know of any specific health systems or healthcare providers that may be interested, please let us know as soon as possible by sending an email to Julia Jordan at JJordan1@cdc.gov. You are also welcomed to share this letter and nomination flyer with your network and partners. Please let CDC know if you have any questions.
The deadline to submit a nomination is Friday, October 22.
