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.
