A recent spotlight of Metropolitan Jewish Health System in New York City reveals that a greater number of health networks are implementing telehealth systems despite a lack of Medicare or Medicaid reimbursement associated with the care.

For these organizations, ROI is primarily substantiated through reduced 30-day readmission rates. Accountable Care Organizations, who focus on improving quality while reducing cost, are also increasing market demand for proven telehealth services.

Home monitoring equipment is also identified as a driver in the increased acceptance of telehealth as a major strategic player in a health network. Home monitoring devices are now capable of accurately recording heart and lung sounds, blood pressure, glucose, pulse oximeter, weight, temperature and  even ECG waveforms.
