Prestera's Technology Assisted Care serves to address the behavioral health needs of rural, isolated and economically disadvantaged Appalachians by: enhancing Prestera Center's Electronic Health Record System to include a Patient Portal and expanding limited telemedicine capabilities to the Center's 8 county catchment area. The first goal of TAC is to improve client treatment outcomes by enhancing the functionality of CareLogic by the implementation of a secure, HIPAA compliant Patient Portal. Through implementing a personal health record system, clients can access their behavioral health information, communicate with providers about their medications, set or adjust appointments, communicate issues of concern with their providers, and access educational information to cope with their illness. Objectives include promoting wellness by increasing the engagement of 2000 clients in their treatment through their use of the TAC patient portal to access services, information and support measured by the types of hits made to the portal site; supporting recovery and resiliency by providing tools for ongoing monitoring of health status as evidenced by the number of hits made to the portal site. The second goal is to improve client treatment outcomes through the expansion of the existing electronic telemedicine system. By expanding the existing telemedicine system, clients will obtain behavioral health treatment and specialty care without barriers such as transportation, lack of qualified providers, or stigma. Objectives for this goal include treatment access through an expanded telemedicine system which will be provided to 900 clients over the program's three years: 200 in Year 1, 300 in Year 2, and 400 in Year 3; integration of the use of technology in client treatment measured by tracking utilization of enhanced technology as evidenced by deployment of portable equipment and secure apps allowing increased client access to treatment and improved client treatment adherence.
