The Alliance for Connected Care is proud to be partnering with NCQA and the American Telemedicine Association to launch the Taskforce on Telehealth Policy to develop recommendations to Congress on permanent telehealth policy. View the more information about the Taskforce on Telehealth Policy here.
This subgroup seeks to understand what we have learned about telehealth utilization and its effect on prevention, urgent care, transportation, and etc. Our goal is to educate a conversation about what impact expanding telehealth access in Medicare will have on federal budgeting models.
Call for Data
In our efforts to gather data on cost, we are asking organizations, health systems, or providers to submit data on telehealth utilization. See below for an example from Stanford Health Care — Stanford was able to show in this chart how telehealth did not increase utilization, but simply represented a changed modality for the care being delivered. We are looking for similar information from a diverse range of healthcare organizations.
Please submit your data/research to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be sure to attribute any data.
