Michigan Health Endowment Fund: Telehealth in Michigan: Insights and Data for Effective Policymaking

The Health Fund and the Ethel & James Flinn Foundation engaged the Institute for Healthcare Policy and Innovation at the University of Michigan to conduct a wide-ranging study on trends and developments in the use of telehealth technology in our state. The resulting report — Telehealth in Michigan — is a comprehensive collection of data that aims to offer policymakers and other interested parties insights regarding the impact of telehealth on healthcare access for Michigan residents.

The report looks at the telehealth usage in relation to demographic information, insurance coverage, geography, broadband access, and more. It offers a deep dive into the impact of telehealth on behavioral health care, as well as specific policy recommendations for using telehealth to increase access to care. The report is available here in full and in sections tied to specific areas of focus.
