The Mountain-Midwest HIV Telehealth Initiative (MMHTI) is a collaboration of the Mountain Plains AIDS Education and Training Center (MPAETC; covering CO, KS, ND, NE, NM, SD, UT, and WY) and the Midwest AIDS Training + Education Center (MATEC; covering IL, IN, IA, MI, MN, MO, and WI).
WHAT WE DO
MMHTI enhances the capacity of clinics in the Mountain-Midwest region to provide state-of-the-art HIV clinical care and support services, thereby increasing access to high-quality care and improving health outcomes for patients with and at risk for HIV infection.
The Mountain-Midwest HIV Telehealth Initiative (MMHTI or the Initiative) was funded by HRSA’s HIV/AIDS Bureau to help primary care clinics provide cutting-edge services to patients with and at risk for HIV infection in accordance with the National HIV/AIDS Strategy. Telehealth programs such as Project ECHO at the University of New Mexico, are an effective tool to improve clinical outcomes for underserved populations with complex health problems.
HOW WE DO IT
MMHTI is a distance-based, collaborative network of providers, targeting clinics serving low volumes of HIV-diagnosed patients. The initiative provides free education and interactive group consultation events, as well as contact with HIV-experienced care providers for ongoing one-on-one consultation between telehealth events.
MMHTI is targeted to the clinic team, including physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, advanced practice nurses, nurses, as well as case managers, social workers, mental health and addictions care providers, dental health providers, and other clinic personnel.
