Consider the following scenario. You are in a rural community that lacks specialty care practice and providers. The practice where you work is going to become part of a statewide Telehealth system linking specialty care to community-based clinics throughout the state. Your clinic will be linked to a large major public school academic health center that is part of a state initiative. You and your colleagues have pushed to establish a statewide network of Telehealth knowing that it will make a considerable difference in the quality of care your patients receive. However, there is a lot of work to do related to its implementation and effective use. The physicians you work with want to control the process, but they want you to do the background work. You need a plan that includes working with your physician colleagues and other staff that also recognizes your leadership role because you will be the liaison to other clinics and the academic health centers statewide. Write an action plan detailing how you plan to complete this task.
