Telehealth Needs Assessment
We at GOODCARE.com, in conjunction with the Finger Lakes Health Systems Agency (FLHSA), have conducted a telehealth needs assessment in the southern Finger Lakes region of upstate New York including Chemung, Schuyler and Steuben counties. Telehealth includes a wide variety of up and coming techniques that are working to aide healthcare providers take better care of more people in a more cost effective way.
The purpose of this study was to assess the need for, the barriers to and the readiness for telehealth applications to be put to work and expanded in the Southern Finger Lakes. The Community Health Foundation of Western and Central New York engaged the FLHSA and GOODCARE.com, to conduct this study. We talked with healthcare leaders in the tri-county region to get input on these important topics. During this process, we conducted a survey, via email and the internet. We also conducted teleconference focus groups. The results of this survey are now available in a couple of formats: A webinar Telehealth Needs Assessment Final Report (17 minute webinar)

You may be aware that recent federal stimulus funding has over 500 million dollars specifically targeted for health information technology and telehealth, with a particular emphasis on rural health. Additionally funding is designated for telecommunications infrastructure which will allow greater access to telehealth for healthcare providers and your patients. This study will generate valuable data and information that you and others in the community can use to generate proposals for that funding.
