Advancing Technology

NEHI’s research is aimed at identifying promising but underused technologies, assessing their impact on improving care and highlighting barriers to their adoption. Prior NEHI research has focused on remote patient monitoring devices, mobile devices, tele-health, tele-ICUs, social media platforms and technologies for managing patients with chronic disease. NEHI’s analysis links successful adoption of innovative technologies to innovations in patient engagement and clinical practice, HIT infrastructure, business processes and provider culture.

    ACO Innovation Summit Series

    An overview of a series of dynamic summits hosted by NEHI for senior leaders for a multi-sector exploration of the potential impact of ACOs on patient access to innovative therapies and technologies. Since passage of the Affordable Care Act, more than 450 Accountable Care Organizations have been established in 49 states. While ACOs are in the spotlight as a means to transform the health care delivery system, many challenges need to be addressed. NEHI has taken the lead by convening a series of dynamic summits for senior leaders from pioneer ACOs, academia, biopharma and medtech for a multi-sector exploration of the potential impact of ACOs on patient access to innovative therapies and technologies.

    ADOPT Toolkit

    The website will offer tools in four discreet technology areas: remote patient monitoring (RPM), medication optimization, care transitions, and mobile health. RPM tools are now available online and tools for mobile health technologies will be available in November. NEHI, with its deep portfolio of research indentifying valuable but under used technologies and barriers to their adoption, served in an advisory role on the Toolkit project. In addition, NEHI partnered with Atrius Health in Massachusetts on a study, funded by CTA, of the effectiveness of remote patient monitoring for patients with chronic illnesses.

    A Matter of Urgency: Reducing Emergency Department Overuse

    The overuse of U.S. emergency departments (EDs) is responsible for $38 billion in wasteful spending each year. Given the tremendous opportunity to lower health care costs by addressing this problem, NEHI launched an initiative to examine ED overuse in detail. Through this initiative, NEHI has identified the key factors driving this costly ED overuse, including who overuses the ED, what causes ED overuse and what can be done to reduce it.

NEHI'S Impact

For Our Members

"When we began to look at Tele-ICU, NEHI’s report was tremendously valuable. To have an independent body do an objective assessment, and develop the numbers, is a very compelling source of information. And really very balanced and very useful in assessing whether this is a right fit for a particular organization. For Steward it was tremendous."-Dr. Justine Carr, Chief Medical Office, Steward Health Care

In the Media

"NEHI researchers identified more than 80 technologies that were highlighted in literature or mentioned in expert interviews that have the potential to help patients with chronic diseases, especially those in California's safety-net population. They then narrowed the list to 11 emerging technologies with the most promise in terms of clinical benefit, cost savings and adoption."-iHealthBeat
