CoYoT1 to California (CTC) — Telemedicine to Engage Young Adults with Diabetes
Project Period: 1/1/2018 – 12/31/2020
Funding Source: Donaghue Foundation
Anticipated Award: $53,770
The purpose of this study is to adapt and pilot-test a successful telemedicine and shared medical appointment clinical care model for young adults with type 1 diabetes. Previously implemented among a privately-insured population at a diabetes specialty center, we will adapt the care model to meet the needs of a low-SES, racially and ethnically diverse population receiving care at a hospital-based endocrine clinic, and evaluate its effectiveness in improving access to care, follow-up frequency, and patient and provider satisfaction.
