Leveraging Telehealth to Support Aging Americans

Leveraging Telehealth to Support Aging Americans

C-TAC, the Coalition to Transform Advanced Care, and AHIP, America’s Health Insurance Plans, have collaborated to release a summary of information on the benefits of telehealth, particularly for the elderly and seriously ill. They feature ResolutionCare as one of their case studies.

“Telehealth has long been viewed as a game-changer for health care service delivery. When fully embraced and executed, telehealth can expand and enhance the delivery of health care services to geographically disadvantaged or underserved populations. … Beyond promoting remote care that could be provided in the patient’s home, telehealth can also help avoid unnecessary and costly emergent or acute care, with an estimated savings of more than $6 billion annually.”
