The Promise of Telehealth

Remote patient monitoring—better known as telehealth—can facilitate communication between patients and their caregivers and engage patients in managing their own care. A new set of case studies highlights three successful telehealth programs:

  • The Veterans Health Administration's Care Coordination Home Telehealth program, which demonstrates the possibility of implementing telehealth on a broad scale and achieving cost-effective, high-quality outcomes for chronic care patients.
  • Partners HealthCare's Connected Cardiac Care Program for heart failure patients, which has generated an estimated $10 million in savings since 2006 for more than 1,200 enrollees.
  • Colorado-based Centura Health at Home, which has merged a clinical call center with telehealth to improve outcomes for older patients after hospital discharge.
