TQ TeleConnection- March 2018
Strong IT and vendor partnerships are key to successful system-wide telehealth
Telehealth is widely successful in the areas of stroke management, mental health care and primary care consultations for remote patients.
So it should come as no surprise that telehealth is now used by more than 70 percent of healthcare providers, according to recent industry estimates.
Yet telehealth’s greatest potential lies in its ability to impact multiple patient demographics — beyond stroke management and other high-acuity cases. A growing number of healthcare leaders understand this potential, and are now trying to determine how to scale their organizations’ existing telehealth programs to impact low-acuity, post-acute and non-emergent care.
