CHCF: Early Evidence, Future Promise of Connected Health

The success of the Affordable Care Act will depend on embracing technology that allows providers to reach more patients, treat them effectively and efficiently, and track their progress over time. With partial sponsorship from the California HealthCare Foundation (CHCF), the February 2014 issue of the journal Health Affairs explores the early evidence and future promise of connected health, which includes telemedicine, telehealth, and mobile health.

The issue includes three articles that result from CHCF-supported work.
