Building on our important work as part of the Taskforce on Telehealth (view our final report here), the Alliance for Connected Care continues to collect data necessary to make the case for permanent telehealth policies. We are seeking 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.
In our efforts to gather data on cost, we are asking organizations, health systems, or providers to submit data on telehealth during COVID-19.
Please submit your data/research to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be sure to attribute any data. Please feel free to reach out with any questions or more examples.
See below for a utilization 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.
