Convening Thought Leadership for Telehealth Futures Summit

Since 2008, state agencies and pilot projects have been collecting evidence to illustrate the effectiveness and efficiency of telehealth technology. Yet, despite its clear benefits, health care providers still consider telehealth an edge-case technology. In other words, it’s a fine solution for doctors with patients that live in the middle of Alaska but it’s not for urban or other non-rural providers.

Why BluePath

Faced with this quandary, a Sacramento-based think tank hired BluePath Health to manage and facilitate a thought leadership forum on the barriers to telehealth’s broad adoption. Using our connections to research institutions, healthcare technology providers and government agencies, BluePath Health will bring together industry leaders to discuss and develop policies for bringing telehealth into mainstream patient care.

Finding a Sustainable Model When the Funding Ends

For the past four years, federally funding had a far reaching impact on California health care. With the help of this funding, the state created programs to guide and direct the successful implementation and use of health IT among providers and public health agencies. With that funding coming to and end, these programs need to an answer to the question: What now?

Why BluePath

During the summer of 2013, one organization approached BluePath with exactly that question. With funding was coming to an end, they needed help finding a sustainable path for the future. Over a five-month project, they partnered with BluePath on a strategic and operational planning effort. BluePath worked with key stakeholders, advisers and staff to identify the right organizational model to support future products and services and define steps needed to relaunch the organization.
