Who we work with
MISSOURI TELEHEALTH NETWORK
In Missouri, telehealth is defined as the delivery of health care services by means of information and communication technologies, which facilitate the assessment, diagnosis, consultation, treatment, education, care management, and self-management of a patient’s health care while such a patient is at the originating site and the health care provider is at the distant site.
AUTISM TREATMENT NETWORK
The Autism Speaks Autism Treatment Network (ATN) is the first bi-national network of hospitals, physicians, researchers, and families at 12 centers across the United States and Canada. We are working together to develop the most effective approach to medical care for children and adolescents affected by autism.
AUTISM INTERVENTION RESEARCH
The Autism Intervention Research Network on Physical Health (AIR-P) is a collaborative agreement within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Maternal and Child Health Research Program. Funding for the grant is through the federal Combating Autism Act, which was enacted in 2006, reauthorized in 2011, and renewed in 2014 as the Autism CARES Act.
