Brigham and Women's launches first of six virtual provider communities

Boston's Brigham and Women's Hospital launched the first of six virtual communities on Monday as part of its Global Health Delivery Project. The initiative, funded by a grant from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, aims to connect healthcare professionals across the country to boost resource and idea sharing.

In addition to the virtual communities, 36 virtual expert panels also will be created over the next three years as part of the project.

"The virtual communities will facilitate an important cross-pollination of ideas, as well as the dissemination of new, translatable knowledge, for healthcare professionals working in the United States and around the world," Rebecca Weintraub, faculty director of the GHD, said in a statement.
