- Telehealth in Colorado Report
Momentum is building across Colorado around telehealth, with new funding opportunities and new systems poised to take hold.
A research brief by the Colorado Health Institute, “Health Care for a High-Tech World: The Potential for Telehealth in Colorado,” delves into the role that telehealth can play in meeting the changing health care needs of Colorado residents. CHI’s analysis finds that telehealth programs are keeping tabs on patients at home following a hospital stay and quickly linking patients and providers with specialists to diagnose and treat critical health issues.
But payment issues, regulatory hurdles and ongoing questions about costs are limiting the adoption and expansion of telehealth in the state.
