The Role of Telehealth and Home Health Care

One area of ongoing innovation is the use of telehealth technologies within the home to improve patient care and monitoring. The Alliance is in the process of developing a comprehensive resource that identifies key research on the use of telehealth and technology in the home and best practices in the use of this technology.

Health iT Work Group

The Alliance has brought together health information technology (Health IT) experts from its member organizations to work together at the Health IT Work Group. This work group is focused specifically on working towards interoperability for home health care electronic medical and health records. As part of this goal, the Health IT Work Group has become involved with, and supports, the Standards & Interoperability (S&I) Framework's Initiative to achieve a seamless health information exchange.
