Reducing Readmissions Rates through Telehealth Solutions

By Lee Barrett

In the January Issue of Readmission News, I briefly addressed the question about the greatest challenges facing the healthcare industry in the struggle to reduce hospital readmissions. As I noted, while there are various strategies, for many healthcare providers, the challenge remains squarely on the clinical basics and the automation of post-discharge care and follow-up.

This month I want to focus on the potential of telehealth solutions to reduce readmissions and the specific related challenges that policymakers, plans, providers and patients must tackle to give those solutions the best chance of success.
