Health Risk-Informed Telemedicine: A Model for Improving Health Equity for People with I/DD

January 25 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Health Risk-Informed Telemedicine: A Model for Improving Health Equity for People with I/DD
Maulik M. Trivedi, StationMD
Wednesday, January 25, 1 p.m. – 2 p.m.

About the Session: Equitable access to telemedicine and other health care services is a challenge for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) because most clinicians are not aware of the unique health risks that exist for this population. As a result, the health conditions most likely to result in morbidity and mortality are overlooked or misdiagnosed.

This presentation highlights an innovative model and public/private partnership between IntellectAbility, StationMD, and the Missouri Division of Developmental Disabilities comprised of three key elements: online clinician education in I/DD healthcare, the use of web-based health risk-informed data, and I/DD competent telemedicine supports. Strategies for preventing unnecessary emergency department visits, promoting identification and diagnosis of often-missed health conditions, and addressing health disparities for people with I/DD will be explored.
