This project will develop long-term, innovative solutions to the critical shortage of health providers on the Fort Peck reservation. The project will seek to develop formal agreements with larger healthcare systems, professional healthcare provider organizations, and universities who will agree to partner with the Fort Peck HPDP program to regularly send licensed healthcare professionals to serve the tribes. The project will also explore developing the capacity to use telemedicine to deliver needed healthcare services.
