Abstract :

Most peopleâ??s off-the-cuff associations with telehealth include technology terms such as video, camera, remote communication, or even robots. But telehealth is not about the technology. Telehealth is healthcare â?? delivering care at a distance. When organizations make telehealth about the technology, for example by putting IT in charge of telehealth, this highpotential solution for many of todayâ??s healthcare problems fails every time. This presentation explores that telehealth really is about people (patients and providers), about processes, about health outcomes, and, yes, about the technology enabling the care at a distance. It will include an overview of dozens of the most common telehealth applications, the numerous benefits of telehealth, and pragmatic guidance how to design executive and operational support telehealth so that telehealth can achieve its full potential.
