Jefferson Health Goes 'All In' On Telehealth

Jefferson Health has gone all in on an enterprise-wide commitment to telehealth--leveraging a licensable technology platform provided by Teladoc.


In today's fast-paced, consumer-driven ecosystem, providers face a growing demand for affordable and accessible quality health care. To meet this need, Jefferson Health has gone all in on an enterprise-wide commitment to telehealth — leveraging a licensable technology platform provided by Teladoc, which has earned the exclusive endorsement of the American Hospital Association.

Jefferson believes its telehealth strategy — one of the boldest in the nation — is its future. "The only question becomes the timing, scope and scale at which you grow telehealth," says Judd Hollander, M.D., emergency medicine physician and senior vice president of health care delivery innovation. He is also associate dean for strategic health initiatives at Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University, which includes 14 hospital Jefferson Health in Philadelphia.

A configurable technology platform for value-based care Teladoc's cloud-based telehealth platform allows Jefferson physicians to conduct virtual visits with high-quality video enterprisewide, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

What sets Teladoc apart is that it built a Software as a Service (SaaS) consumer telehealth platform designed specifically for health systems that integrates into the electronic health record, Dr. Hollander says.

As with other health system clients, Teladoc's licensed platform integrates seamlessly into Jefferson Health's care delivery model. Telehealth only works if virtual office visits are as simple and productive for doctors as being face-to-face with patients. Teladoc’s solution fits seamlessly into Jefferson doctors' traditional workflows. Now they can reliably connect with patients anywhere, from any device. Download this case study to learn more.
