CalHIVE Telehealth & Virtual Care (2020 – 2022)

The CalHIVE Telehealth & Virtual Care Improvement Collaborative (2020 – 2022) provided technical assistance to clinicians to leverage telehealth for chronic disease management of patients with diabetes and asthma within the primary care setting.

Participants were seven provider organizations representing 1,300 clinicians located in eight counties throughout Southern California, the Inland Empire and the Central Valley:

The collaborative built on CQC’s, four-year Practice Transformation Initiative — which engaged over 4,500 physicians providing care for 3.1 million patients and generated $186 million in cost savings, or $10.11 for every dollar invested. The program produced dramatic reductions in emergency room utilization and hospitalizations and equally impressive gains in care quality.


CalHIVE’s Telehealth & Virtual Care Improvement Collaborative was possible thanks to the generous support of CVS Health and the California Health Care Foundation.
