Telehealth Governance: An Essential Tool to Empower Today’s Healthcare Leaders
The authors embrace a philosophical argument for telehealth governance that emphasizes active risk management and resource management to ensure alignment between long- and short-term strategies. This is accomplished through intentional leadership, accountability, and responsibility in accord with the organization’s mission, vision, and values. Three key functions of telehealth governance are explored here: management, prioritization of services, and achieving return on investment (ROI). In addition, how long it takes to create governance and milestones that define progress over time are addressed.
