Implementation of telementoring for pain management in Veterans Health Administration: Spatial analysis

Evan P. Carey, MS, et al.

In 2011, the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) started a telementoring program called the Specialty Care Access Network-Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes (SCAN-ECHO) for pain management in seven healthcare networks. This analysis examines the implementation of Pain SCAN-ECHO by mapping the location of Veterans with chronic pain, VHA healthcare resources, and the reach of the program in a sample network. For all seven networks, we investigated the relationship between distance to nearest in-person specialty pain care and access to a primary care provider participating in Pain SCAN-ECHO.
