    Shari Barkin, MD, MSHS
    Chief, Division of General Pediatrics
    Professor of Pediatrics, General Pediatrics
    William K. Warren Foundation Chair, Department of Pediatrics
    Director of Pediatric Obesity Research, VUMC



    Abstract:
    Funded by NIH grant, we collected data from 500 diverse patient families who receive care in the Department of Pediatrics’ Division of General Pediatrics, to assess use and interest in telehealth as well as digital literacy and digital access. We captured changes in the healthcare system from September 2020 to the present and prospective telehealth use in primary care pediatrics, collecting both qualitative and quantitative data from both patients and providers. This allows us to understand a systems approach to telehealth equity and a new construct of digital healthcare literacy.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. To examine telehealth equity through a systems approach.
    2. To learn about digital health care literacy.
    3. To understand patient and provider telehealth experiences.
