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.

    FAST Detailed Technology Analysis - Home Telehealth

    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.
