WHAT IS BCUREFUL RAISING FUNDS FOR?
In July 2015, Bcureful and the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance launched the Telehealth/Telemedicine Initiative” as the first step towards fulfilling a common goal, which is to improve access to affordable care for those affected by tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) and enable healthcare providers to consult with TSC experts utilizing video teleconferencing technology.
We are fortunate to have a champion advocate of telemedicine–Dr. John J. Bissler, MD, a TSC kidney expert who developed a Telemedicine Program at LeBonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis, TN. Dr. Bissler is Director of the Tuberous Sclerosis Center of Excellence and the Division of Nephrology at LeBonheur and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The plan in 2016 is to launch a pilot program to provide access to Dr. Bissler’s expertise via his video conferencing system.
From John J. Bissler, MD
We will conduct a two-year study that enroll up to 50 patients who cannot utilize a local TSC clinic. We will use Telehealth to supply care consisting of three to four visits to help assess, coordinate, and deliver care. In the process, we will gather medical and financial data so that we can compare the costs of care before the implementation, to after. We will test the hypothesis that the implementation of telehealth reduces cost to the patient and to their insurance provider.
