CAST Telehealth and RPM Selection Tool

Thank you for using the CAST Telehealth and Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) Selection Tool. This tool will be most useful after you have read our Telehealth & RPM Whitepaper to understand the planning and requirements identification process.

We highly recommend convening a multidisciplinary team to define requirements for your organization’s telehealth program.

Once you have defined such requirements, this tool can help you learn which of the reviewed telehealth and RPM products might meet your needs.

If you receive no results, consider excluding less important requirements to broaden the possibilities.

Our Telehealth Selection Matrix provides a detailed review of available products and the functionalities they offer that allows you to drill down on the products shortlisted using this tool.

If you have a My.LeadingAge.org account, we strongly recommend logging in BEFORE USING THE TOOL.
