Connected Health

Keeping Individuals Safe, Independent and Connected to Care

What is Connected Health?

What is Connected Health?

Connected health, also known as technology-enabled care (TEC), refers to a model of healthcare management and delivery that uses technology to provide healthcare services remotely. These technologies include wireless, digital, electronic, mobile and telehealth, and are used to drive more integrated care and better health outcomes.

Patients can receive around-the-clock monitoring and care from the comfort of their homes or outside of traditional office settings. Connected health is effective because it is designed around the patients’ needs and helps bridge the gaps between patients, caregivers, clinicians and payers.

Benefits of Connected Health

A growing body of evidence demonstrates that connected health technologies can make healthcare more effective and efficient. Connected health delivers many benefits including expanded access to care, safety, better disease management, improved medication adherence, and reduced hospitalizations and readmissions. Connected health enables individuals to live safely in their homes while keeping them connected to their care teams. It also helps reduce costs associated with unnecessary hospitalizations while improving patient engagement and overall health.

Examples of Connected Health

Connected health often includes programs such as telehealth, remote care (such as home care) and disease and lifestyle management. Some of the most common examples of connected health include:

  • Home care through remote patient monitoring, remote monitoring of vital signs, EKG or blood pressure and remote doctor-patient consultations.
  • Traditional telemedicine, including video conferencing for real-time patient-provider consultations.
  • Monitoring programs to ensure the safety and quality of life of older adults who wish to live at home independently. For example, medical alert systems, also known as personal emergency response systems.
  • Lifestyle and fitness coaching for wellness or health risk reduction. For example, wearable technology such as fit bit, mobile apps and other types of wellness technology.
