LeadingAge CAST expands telehealth selection resources
The LeadingAge Center for Aging Services Technologies (CAST) has updated its Telehealth and Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) Selection Tool with five new telehealth products/vendors and two new case studies.
The free tool is designed to help long-term and post-acute care (LTPAC) provider organizations identify and select the telehealth system that best fits their needs. The online product selection tool allows users can pick the basic requirements they need in a telehealth or RPM system from a set of 12 major categories of functionalities and get a shortlist of only products that meet those requirements.
Other resources include a project management and implementation guide, a whitepaper and case studies from long-term and post-acute care settings.
“The telehealth and RPM selection tool is updated every year so that it continues to be relevant and useful to those interested in telehealth,” said CAST Executive Director, Majd Alwan. “In addition to LTPAC providers, other consumers, such as caregivers and older adults, can use this as a resource to help them understand telehealth technologies.”
