Detailed Technology Analysis - Tele-stroke
Publication Date: July 17, 2009
During 2008-2009, NEHI's Fast Adoption of Significant Technologies (FAST) initiative focused on telemedicine technologies that address chronic disease. Chronic disease is of particular concern because of the growing prevalence of illnesses such as diabetes and heart disease and the mounting costs these preventable conditions generate in the health care system. NEHI reviewed over 100 telemedicine technologies, identified the eleven considered most promising, and then examined in detail the two that were highest rated, Tele-stroke and Home Telehealth. NEHI completed Detailed Technology Analyses of each.
