Bringing Telehealth Services to Vulnerable Central Valley Residents

Associate Professor Kathy Kim conducts research that focuses on information technology to improve community health, care coordination and clinical research. Her areas of clinical interest include cancer, obesity, heart disease and other chronic conditions.

Kim leads UC Davis Health in a new public-private pilot initiative to bring telehealth services to underserved rural residents in Merced County. The mission of ACTIVATE — Accountability, Coordination and Telehealth in the Valley to Achieve Transformation and Equity — is to improve the health and well-being of rural, agricultural communities by empowering community health centers and health care providers to support patients through telehealth technology.

In this webinar, learn how Kim, along with researchers at the Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS) and the Banatao Institute at the University of California, are demonstrating an effective, cost-efficient program for reaching vulnerable populations with essential telehealth services that can be scaled and adopted to improve health systems in communities statewide and nationally.
