Education

The S.O.L.V.E. Health Tech team develops and presents educational materials about digital health and equity to a range of audiences in the public and private sectors. 

California Health Care Foundation Issue Brief.

In collaboration with the California Health Care Foundation, we created a series of briefs focused on how to create equity and inclusion during technology implementation and design to help health care providers, health plans, and developers reach everyone. The first brief covers how providers and plans can help communities better adopt health tools, and the second brief covers how designers can create more inclusive digital health tools.

Four levels for considering telemedicine equity: leadership, providers and teams, engaging patients, and optimizing for the future.

Developed in partnership with the Center for Care Innovations and with support from The Commonwealth Fund, the Telemedicine for Health Equity Toolkit helps remote care reach patients with low-incomes and from racial and ethnic minority groups to promote health equity rather than exacerbate health disparities. 

In August, 2021, Dr. Lyles outlined best practices for implementing telehealth in an equitable, inclusive way. 

In July 2020, we presented key patient barriers to adopting telehealth and offered strategies, resources, and tools to reduce limitations to access.
