"Telehealth and the Triple Aim: A Forum for Advancing Knowledge and Practice" Takes Place in Late April

CCHP’s eight-month project to assess telehealth’s role in achieving the Triple Aim’s goals concludes with an invitation-only national forum of key health care players. The event, which will take place in Sacramento on April 23, will convene a small group of influential industry experts, premier researchers, policymakers, insurers, and grant funders. Participants will discuss CCHP’s research findings, and offer recommendations to ensure an optimal environment for technology-enabled health care.

The final vetted report of the project findings will be released shortly after the forum.
