How will telemedicine progress to become an integral part of healthcare delivery? Banner Health is answering that question by launching a robust telemedicine model designed to improve care delivery across the care continuum—from the ICU to skilled nursing to chronic care. Banner’s TeleICU team has helped reduce mortality 50% below expectations and length of stay by 30%. Now Banner is taking telehealth beyond the ICU. The keys to success are to develop a clear strategy, to build a multidisciplinary and integrated team with well-defined roles, and to provide physicians, nurses, and home coaches with the expertise and tools to interpret data.
