Return on Health in action: Telehealth case studies

A physician sitting at a desk having a teleconference with another health professional via a laptop, with a stethoscope and clipboard on the right side of the desk.

The Return on Health report (PDF) includes case studies that explore the value of virtual care (also referred to as telehealth) through the virtual care framework, developed by the American Medical Association, in collaboration with Manatt Health. These real-world examples were designed and developed in collaboration with organizations that are currently measuring the value of their virtual care programs. For a brief overview, see "How to measure the value of virtual health care" (Barron, Mishra, Lloyd & Augenstein; Harvard Business Review).

  • Defining success.
  • Making the case.
  • Evaluating success.
  • Scaling.
