InTouch Health, Mission Health, and Jefferson Health launch telehealth collaboration to address remote access and critical care challenges

Jan. 25, 2018

InTouch Health, an enterprise telehealth platform, announced partnerships with North Carolina-based Mission Health and Pennsylvania-based Jefferson Health to jointly develop new telehealth solutions to improve patient access and quality of care while reducing overall healthcare costs.

After years of working separately with InTouch Health, Jefferson Health and Mission Health will be sharing learnings from past projects and working together to design mutually-beneficial and innovative telehealth programs to address their most pressing healthcare needs. Over five years, the partners will continue their commercial relationships and identify new areas—primarily within acute care and outpatient care—where providers can use telehealth technology to streamline access to care and increase care coordination. Leveraging the scalable InTouch Telehealth Network, a collaborative team from all three organizations will work to develop software and systems applications to support these goals for use by Jefferson, Mission, and the broader healthcare market nationwide.

InTouch Health will work with both health systems to create virtual care models across 10 identified use cases, including stroke, sepsis, and acute heart failure. Once developed, those care models will be tested at Jefferson Health, primarily an urban setting, and Mission Health, primarily a suburban/rural setting, to ensure the care pathways and supporting technologies improve patient access and quality of care and are applicable across markets and geographies.
