The Business of Telehealth

There’s a lot involved with building a Telehealth program. Besides determining which services and support you’ll offer to your patients and connected providers, you’ll need to be aware of the business aspect of Telehealth as well.

There are a number of steps to building a sustainable Telehealth program. We have broken the process into three basic steps, each of which should be considered in your business planning process.

First, Program Planning and Implementation need to be considered. What services will you provide, where will you connect, who will drive your program and many other concerns need to be addressed in the formation of your Telehealth project.

Once you have completed your preliminary plan, the next step in Building a Telehealth Program is to prepare a business plan for the project. A thorough and well-thought-out business plan will guide you through the implementation process. Business plan preparation will answer questions and address concerns before they become challenges. We have gathered several documents to help you plan and clearly define your Telehealth project.

A critical step in ensuring the program grows and flourishes is Marketing Telehealth. Through several webinars and development of Marketing Toolkits, NRTRC has compiled a number of helpful documents to guide you through the process of developing your Telehealth Marketing Plan.

Key Issues in Specialty Consultation Telemedicine Services

An Implementation Guide

This is a guide to Specialty Telehealth Services prepared by our colleagues at the Great Plains Telehealth Resource & Assistance Center (gpTRAC). They have offered to share it with our members to help them develop their telehealth services. As noted in the preface, the guide provides general information and guidance regarding issues of importance around patient services. It is not intended to serve as a “step-by-step” guide to service implementation. Every organization’s needs are unique and would require more in-depth discussions with NRTRC staff to identify a complete implementation plan for your program. You are encouraged to contact staff directly if interested in that service.

We hope you find it helpful.
