Location: Experience Zone - ePosters

The year 2016 marked Shriners Hospitals for Children's (SHC) creation and implementation of the SHC Telehealth Care Network. An exciting and transformative initiative for the organization, SHC launched the Telehealth Care Network with three of its twenty-two hospitals across the US, Mexico, and Canada. Each of the three initial SHC Hospitals (Philadelphia, Salt Lake City, and Galveston) partnered with two to three key geographic regional affiliates to setup conveniently located pediatric Tele-Orthopaedic and pediatric Tele-Burn clinics. Since go live in May 2016, the results of the SHC Telehealth Care Network include; establishing a new geographic footprint in Mexico and across the US, increasing access to pediatric specialties for medically underserved areas, excellent patient/family satisfaction, and a reduction in miles traveled to care and transportation costs. The optimal results of the SHC Telehealth Care Network's implementation to date have justified the organization to plan the enterprise wide rollout to the remaining nineteen SHC hospitals.
