The Center for Connected Health Policy (CCHP) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization working to maximize telehealth’s ability to improve health outcomes, care delivery, and cost effectiveness.
CCHP is a program under the Public Health Institute and is dedicated to integrating telehealth virtual technologies into the health care system through advancing sound policy based on objective research and informed practices. CCHP’s mission is to advance state and national telehealth policies that promote better systems of care, improved health outcomes, and provide greater health equity of access to quality, affordable care and services.
CCHP actively researches and analyzes important telehealth policy issues, engages influential public and private sectors through analyses and reports, and provides key telehealth policy resources nationwide. CCHP acts as a catalyst for change by providing non-partisan, unbiased, research-based policy analyses and bringing policy makers together with the private health care sector, health plans, academic researchers, and consumer health advocates to create successful models of connected care, that lead to more transparent systems of communication between providers and patients which can lead to better health outcomes and greater efficiencies in the delivery system.
