Washington-LeadingAge's Center for Aging Services Technologies (CAST) today released Telehealth and RPM: Provider Case Studies 2014, a set of 3 case studies that offer peer-based guidance for long-term and post-acute care (LTPAC) organizations that are selecting and implementing telehealth and remote patient monitoring (RPM) products.
Telehealth, which includes RPM, is the delivery of health-related services and information via telecommunications technologies.
The case studies allow LTPAC organizations, physician practices, integrated health delivery networks, accountable care organizations (ACOs) and others to learn about selecting the appropriate telehealth tool through real-life examples from similar organizations.
The impacts experienced by users, and the potential revenue streams and business models that support these telehealth technologies are also examined by these new case studies.
"The case studies we've included this year truly illustrate the wide variety of technology platforms, settings and audiences where telehealth can make a difference" said Majd Alwan, Ph.D., LeadingAge senior vice president for technology and executive director of CAST. "We look forward to continuing our work with the participating vendors and providers to track real-life examples of how telehealth and RPM are saving money while improving health outcomes."
The case studies complete CAST's telehealth portfolio, which also includes:
A whitepaper, Telehealth and Remote Patient Monitoring for Long-Term and Post-Acute Care
Telehealth Selection Matrix
Online Telehealth Selection Tool
The updated telehealth portfolio exists as a companion to CAST's electronic health record (EHR) selection and implementation portfolio.
