The institute will focus on programs and solutions that leverage telehealth technology to make care more convenient and accessible.

The institute is named after visionary philanthropists Gustave Hauser, Warner Cable Communications founding chairman and CEO, and Rita Hauser, an international lawyer and president of The Hauser Foundation, who have donated more than $50 million since 2011 to support NewYork-Presbyterian’s health information technology and telemedicine programs.

The New York City-based 11-hospital health system has been steadily scaling up its virtual care offerings in recent years. Its NYP OnDemand program, a collaboration with Weill Cornell Medicine and Columbia University Irving Medical Center, connects patients with physicians from a mobile phone, tablet, computer and kiosks at select Walgreens and Duane Reade stores throughout New York City. NewYork-Presbyterian also offers remote patient monitoring, which can reduce the length of hospital stays and preventable readmissions, and has a command center that connects clinical care programs throughout the health system.
