Hospitals and health systems are using telehealth services to connect patients to care and health professionals to each other in ways that improve value for patients, communities and regions, according to a new issue brief by AHA’s the Value Initiative. “As they continue to innovate how they provide care, hospitals are seeing the measurable impact they can make by leveraging technology to connect with patients in new ways,” the brief notes. “While hospitals and communities have varied telehealth needs, strategically designing a high-value telehealth approach will help hospitals improve outcomes and the patient experience while reducing cost.”
