Primary Care System in Connecticut Expands Telehealth Services to Delaware

Community Health Center, a primary care system based in Middletown, Conn., has announced the expansion of its telehealth program into Delaware.

Providers from Westside Family Healthcare in Wilmington, Del., are now participating in CHC's Project ECHO, or Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes. The program aims to expand access to specialty care for underserved populations, joining specialists and primary care providers for video conferences to discuss treatments for patients with complex illnesses.

Westside physicians are participating in the Project ECHO Pain Management program, supported by Delaware Health and Social Services' Division of Public Health, the Delaware Prescription Drug Action Committee and the Delaware Telehealth Coalition.

"The goal of Project ECHO is to increase the competency of Delaware health providers to manage complex pain conditions," said Gerard Galluci, MD, DHSS medical director, in the news release. "Pain management is an important area of focus for the healthcare community and the project also helps build our capacity to utilize innovative technology for new treatment options."
