Request for Proposals DSRIP Project 2cii: Telemedicine

Telemedicine is typically defined as interactive telecommunications equipment to support direct, active communication between providers and patients.  CPWNY seeks to fund projects that implement telemedicine services, aimed at reducing avoidable hospital use by increasing patient access to services not otherwise available and/or increasing specialty expertise of primary care providers and their staff in order to increase availability of scarce specialty services.  CPWNY also seeks to fund projects that include implementation of health assessments or consultations, and support evidence based interventions related to the social determinates of health over the telecommunications infrastructure.

picture1

JustTellOne.org’s mission is to give Western New York youth and young adults the tools and confidence to start the conversation about their mental health or behavioral health issues such as substance abuse. By helping a young person reach out for help as early as possible, we can increase the use of intervention services and decrease the likelihood of the issue turning into an emergency.

JustTellOne.org is a public awareness initiative led by the Mental Health Association of Erie County and the Erie County Council for the Prevention of Alcohol and Substance Abuse (ECCPASA), in association with Millennium Collaborative Care and Community Partners of WNY, and with support from organizations representing Niagara, Orleans, Erie, Genesee, Wyoming, Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, and Allegany Counties.
