West Health brought together the most knowledgeable experts and organizations to create this first-of-its-kind telehealth implementation manual for post-acute and long-term care (PALTC) settings. In the following pages, you will find the information you need to successfully implement a telehealth program, including advice from experts. This practical guide covers a range of topics in detail to help you understand the specifics of the technology’s use, the broader landscape of telehealth, and how you can tailor these innovations to your organization’s requirements. From needs and readiness assessments to reimbursement models and performance monitoring, we have created a comprehensive guide for effective telehealth program implementation for PALTC.
