NCPC encouraging PCPs in underserved areas to complete DHT survey

The Morehouse School of Medicine’s National Center for Primary Care (NCPC) is encouraging primary care clinicians (physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners) who serve underserved communities in Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, and Tennessee to complete a ‘Digital Health Tools Study’ survey that it is conducting to assess the adoption and use of digital health tools (DHT).

NCPC says that, “As highlighted by the disparate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on minority and underserved communities, it is vital that the clinicians serving these communities have the tools and resources they need.”

NCPC adds that the “survey is part of a larger research study examining how DHTs are being used to advance health equity in these four states, including the unique health system and policy landscapes contributing to DHT adoption and use.”

And NCPC notes that, “Eligible participants will receive a $50 gift card for their time and effort.”

Participants must complete a survey request form as a first step.
