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.
The Autism Care Network is the first and only network of its kind focused on better autism care, delivered at scale and at speed, to improve health and quality of life for children with autism and their families throughout North America. Launched in April 2021, the Network is supported by Autism Speaks, AIR-P, the J. Donald Lee and Laurelle Lee Family Foundation and PCORnet.
ECHO Autism Communities is about equipping all communities to care for and support individuals with autism and their families through best practices, regardless of geographic location. Utilizing the ECHO Autism Model to mentor and guide community practitioners, educators, and advocates, creating local expertise and increasing access for individuals with autism and their families.
