From emergency department care to remote patient monitoring for chronic care management and access to care from specialists, telehealth is changing the way health care is provided – both expanding patient access to routine and specialty care while improving patient satisfaction and outcomes. The AHA supports the expansion of patient access created by hospitals’ efforts to deliver high-quality and innovative telehealth services.
