EVIDENCE

There are multiple examples, including use of telehealth/telemonitoring on the national level, that support telehealth/telemonitoring as an effective way of chronic disease management and reduction of healthcare costs and readmissions rates.

• Veterans Health Administration’s Care Coordination/Home Telehealth program (CCHT), which has been in operation since 2003.

CCHT was designed to help manage the health of chronically ill patients who were at risk of deteriorating to the point of requiring long-term institutional care.

The program has led to a 40% reduction in overnight stays for patients in the program, compared to their pre-enrollment numbers. There’s been a significant decrease in hospital utilization for eight major conditions, including diabetes, hypertension and congestive heart failure.

• Connected Cardiac Care Program

The program has enrolled more than 1,200 patients since its introduction in 2006 and has experienced an approximate 50 percent reduction in heart failure hospital readmission rates overall for enrolled patients. The center estimates the program has generated total cost savings of more than $10 million since 2006

• Integrity telehealth was able to achieve 30% decrease in re-admission rates. There has been a significant decrease in hospitalization among the patients with congestive heart failure.
