Telehealth is a smart path to Quality and incentives

According to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, the Quality Payment Program brings changes to the delivery system repayment landscape for health care providers. With the changes there are some incentives and opportunity for innovation.

To that end, incorporating integrated sustainable Telehealth Services is a brilliant way for healthcare practices to focus on improving health care quality, access, and revenue streams.

Development of sustainable Telehealth programs can enable many practices, hospitals, and medical training institutions to qualify for incentives under the Advance Alternative Payment Models (APMs) outlined with the Medicare Access and Chip Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA).  

Telehealth services can help practices qualify as for APM models and improve the quality of care the numbers of patients receive who are able to access care. Having a well designed, staffed, and functional telehealth program is a smart way to focus on sustainable growth by improving patient care Quality while broadening the practices’ patient base.

This focus on Quality patient care delivery can help our aging healthcare infrastructures build the bridges that expand health practices to reach patients in Rural Communities and Medically Underserved areas anywhere while helping providers improve their revenue streams.
