Adapting an Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) for Effective Telehealth Service Management
1:00pm - 2:00pmWednesday, February 13
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
Health systems are struggling to integrate telehealth into enterprise-level care delivery. While some individual telehealth programs have demonstrated successful pilots, few healthcare systems have experienced the integration of a robust number of specialties developed and scaled for effective telehealth delivery. As telehealth adoption is beginning to shift to the late majority, providers and systems are challenged by the complexities of telehealth service development and implementation. While many resources are available to assist with telehealth policy and technology, information on actual telehealth service development and implementation is scarce. At the Medical University of South Carolina (“MUSC Health”), the Center for Telehealth leveraged ITIL (Information Technology Infrastructure Library), a non-proprietary framework designed for IT service providers, for the successful development, implementation and sustainability of telehealth services.
