Advancing Gambling and Gaming Telehealth Through Research and Education
The mission of KRI is to provide state gaming regulators, legislatures, and public health experts with world-class research that will help reduce health inequities for those experiencing gambling disorder in the populations they serve, improve overall health of their citizens, and inform public health policy and gambling legislation.
At KRI, we believe that telehealth integration into existing treatment options as well as stand-alone telehealth systems that complement the care delivery continuum are the key to access for the future of treatment for individuals, families, and sub-populations that are at higher risk of experiencing gambling related harms due to age, socio-economic status, location in a rural community, race,
ethnicity, religion, or gender.
Our goal is to advance the adoption of evidence-based telehealth solutions for gambling and gaming communities. Through research, we are currently developing evidence-based practice models for gambling with the intent of better understanding how telehealth, better access to assistance, and better access to the right tools, can impact high-quality mental health outcomes for those in treatment.
KRI has partnered with several major universities to increase the level of research in the field and develop best practices for the industry.
