Implementing Telehealth for Health Systems & Care Organizations
Why delivering high-quality care is becoming even more essential:
How Does Telehealth Improve Patient Care?
Health systems can impact the value-based care system by taking a stand in telehealth to help improve proactive patient care. Whether you are a managed care organization, accountable care organization or a payer health system, you can directly impact patient outcomes while lowering healthcare costs. Adoption of telehealth has increased by 1400% over the last four years. Payers have realized the direct impact on the value of care, leading them to now promote it. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services announced that telehealth and telemedicine services coverage will be expanding in 2020.
With 45% of Millennials not having a primary care physician, this is driving higher usage of retail clinics and telehealth. With the increase in Baby Boomers wanting to age at home, the missing piece in home health is to extend the "last mile" to the home site. Patients on Medicaid historically use the emergency department as the first line of defense for healthcare.
The value-based care system has to overcome obstacles such as transportation, work and school schedules that get in the way of patients making all type of doctor's appointments. Implementing telehealth for your health system drives not only increases patient convenience, but it also drives lower costs both short and long term.
