Community Health Plan of Washington has announced a partnership with The MAVEN Project.
The MAVEN Project links primary care providers at community health centers in medically under-served communities with primary care and specialty care physicians, who provide medical consultation services via telehealth technology.
Your child with special health care needs requires constant monitoring regarding respiratory difficulties and feeding issues. How does a parent carry out these duties while maintaining the “routine” family activities?
In these examples and so many other circumstances, telehealth could play a critical role in your family’s daily activities.

“We want to be the organization that doctors go to when they’re retired or retiring, to be able to continue to make a contribution,” Green said. “We want to marshal this army of retired doctors.”
At the core of the Maven Project is telemedicine technology, which enables doctors to consult face to face with physicians in faraway places.
Excerpt from MAVEN Project – Facilitating Access to Specialty Medical Care through Telehealth Technology by United Way of Miami Dade:

Excerpt from The MAVEN Project’s Mission to Improve Access to Healthcare by MedTech Boston:

Excerpt from University of Miami Miller School of Medicine:

The collaborative MAVEN Project, launched on Friday, November 17, at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine’s Mailman Center for Child Development, promises to make a big difference by connecting patients’ physicians in the community to volunteer physician experts through telehealth technology.
