Specialists within San Francisco's safety net provide live video and store and forward telehealth consultation services through innovative collaborations with community services and primary care.

Overview

Community Behavioral Health Services Telepsychiatry Consultation

 

Telepsychiatry Consultation leverages synchronous video technologies to provide efficient primary care access to psychiatry services.  Telepsychiatry Consultation is part of the Community Behavioral Health Services (CBHS)--Primary Care Behavioral Health Consultation (PCBH) service structure, through which population-based clinical care is co-located and integrated within primary care clinics.  Two clinics are currently enrolled as originating sites (Maxine Hall Health Center (MHHC) and Potrero Hill Health Center (PHHC)), with plans to increase reach as PCBH services expand.

 

ZSFG Diabetic Retinopathy Screening Program

 

Diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness among working-age adults. Early detection and treatment can reduce associated vision loss by 90%.  The ZSFG Diabetic Retinopathy Screening Program provides diabetic patients point-of-service or day-of-service retinal screening through a store-and-forward (SAF) telehealth platform.  ZSFG Diabetic Retinopathy Screening is currently deployed in the Family Health Center (FHC) and General Medicine Clinic (GMC) at SFGH, and will expand to off-campus Community Health Network (CHN) clinic partners.

 

ZSFG Teledermatology

 

Teledermatology is a classic store-and-forward (SAF) application that can screen and eliminate an estimated 70%-80% of unnecessary in-person dermatology consultations.  The ZSFG Department of Dermatology brings years of teledermatology practice and expertise to its service of the SFDPH CHN.  The first two SFDPH Community-Oriented Primary Care (COPC) clinics that have been enrolled are Chinatown Public Health Center (CPHC) and Ocean Park Health Center (OPHC).
