Telehealth Strategic Planning
Using what we have covered in class, assume the role of an executive director of a service in our healthcare delivery system (OT, PT, Behavioral Health, Mental Health, and Acute Care Settings are all appropriate starting points). You are now tasked with creating a strategic vision for a telehealth service (Identification of the target population, review of relevant state and federal policy, and establishment of goals for the program). Your final product should be a narrative piece of original work between 8 and 10 pages. External citations should be included (6-10 citations). The narrative may include lists, figures, or diagrams, but the work needs to be clear and concise. You should create a fictional practice with the following goals and objectives to focus your assessment on:
Alignment and Engagement – Who are the stakeholders, where will funding come from, and what are the goals or overall strategy?
Enabling Technologies – Select a vendor, app, or platform to assist your patient population. You should identify a minimum of 3 competitive technologies.
Care Across the Continuum – What are the state and federal policies, how will organizational policy be implemented, and who is the target population.
Interoperability – How can information captured be shared with others? Will information take the form of a reporting dashboard, alerts to providers, or structured follow up by other care teams.
