The Connected Care Accelerator Initiative - Equity Collaborative provides grants to safety net organizations in California to rapidly design, test, scale, and share new strategies to improve equity in access to telehealth.

Participants must address at least two of the following focus areas:

  • Improving the use of video telehealth
  • Supporting patients with digital barriers
  • Expanding access to telehealth for patients with a preferred language other than English

The 13-month learning collaborative will consists of a guided program for small, multidisciplinary teams working to develop and implement strategies to improve and sustain telehealth delivery for a specified population. The program will also provide teams with virtual resources, including peers, learning events, tools/templates, coaches and subject-matter experts.


Eligible organizations include:

  • Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC) and FQHC look-alikes
  • Community clinics, rural health clinics, and free clinics
  • Ambulatory care clinics owned and operated by county health systems or public hospitals
  • Indian Health Service clinics

Medi-Cal and uninsured patients must make up at least 50 percent of the organization's total patient population. Participants will be selected to achieve diversity in geographic location, community health center size, and patient mix.
