Ferrante Quoted on Value of Telehealth with Health Care Official Appointments

28 March 2017 Healthcare Informatics News
TJ Ferrante was quoted in a Healthcare Informatics article, “With New Healthcare Federal Officials Confirmed, Health IT Leaders Ponder Their Agendas,” covering the widespread support of telehealth services on the Hill and how it’s necessary for the new federal officials to keep this a priority.

Ferrante explained that the Expanding Capacity for Health Outcomes Act and the 21st Century Cures Act “signal telehealth’s broad appeal as a uniquely bipartisan solution in an increasingly divided policy landscape.” He also explains that “the inclusion of telehealth in value-based payment models can help assess the value of telehealth in situations where financial incentives promote quality improvement and costs savings.”
