2 Telemedicine is the use of medical information exchanged from one site to another via electronic communications to improve a patient s clinical health status. Source: The American Telemedicine Association (ATA) The ATA treats telemedicine and telehealth as synonyms and uses the terms interchangeably. 2

3 Types of Telemedicine Video-Teleconferencing (VTC) Synchronous Telemedicine Video-Based Live Store-and-Forward (S&F) Asynchronous Telemedicine Home Telehealth (HTM) Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) May be Live or S&F or both 3

4 How Typical is Telemedicine? Currently about 200 telemedicine networks in U.S. 3,500 service sites in the U.S. Over half of all U.S. hospitals now use some form of telemedicine. 10,000,000 9,000,000 8,000,000 7,000,000 6,000,000 5,000,000 4,000,000 3,000,000 2,000,000 1,000, Patients Served by Telemedicine in North America Source: The American Telemedicine Association (ATA) 4

9 Estimated Travel Savings from Telehealth for ALL Patients Annual Travel Savings (by Case Role) $12,000,000 $10,000,000 $8,000,000 $6,000,000 $4,000,000 $2,000,000 $0 Primary Care Specialty Care Medicaid now saves an estimated $10 to $11 for every $1 spent on specialty telehealth consultations Estimated annual savings from telehealth for all patients amounts to about $10m with a total savings of $63.4m since

11 ANMC Turnaround Time 25% of cases are turned around in 60 minutes 60% of cases are turned around in the same day 11

12 Segment Care Management Models Based on Patient Care Needs 5% of patients. Usually with complex disease(s), comorbidities. Shift from high-cost services to lower-cost management. 15% - 35% of patients. May have conditions not under control. Avoid unnecessary higher-acuity, highercost spending. 60% - 80% of patients. Any minor conditions are easily managed. Keep patient healthy Source: Playbook for Population Health, The Advisory Board Company

14 Average Cost (during Year 1 post-discharge) Caring for Our Most Expensive and Most Vulnerable Infant Population $200,000 $180,000 $160,000 $140,000 $120,000 Year 1 Costs Post-Discharge (NICU) 70% Total Cost 100% Total Cost Respiratory System Congenital Anomalies Some of these Primary Diagnosis Groups include patients that account for 70% - 100% of all costs for NICU patients in Year 1 post-discharge $100,000 $80,000 Congenital + Respiratory $60,000 $40,000 $20,000 $ # Patients (with 1 full year of post-discharge data) 14

15 Caring for Our Most Expensive and Most Vulnerable Infant Population We estimate we would save 37% on the cost for care of these patients by: Reducing emergency visits and associated costs by 60% Reducing inpatient hospital admissions and associated costs by 50% Decreasing emergent travel and associated costs by 60% decreasing non-emergent travel and associated costs by 20% Most importantly this will improve access to care and improve the overall health of these children 15
