Innovative Encounter Models


The WEDI Report Innovative Encounter Models subworkgroup evaluates business cases and return on investment (ROI) for innovative encounter models (e.g., electronic visits and communication, electronic monitoring, telemedicine) using existing and emergent technologies that will foster enhanced collaboration between patients and providers at a lower cost and with increased value, and compare characteristics to in-person patient encounters

The subworkgroup evaluates the exchange of encounter information between patient and provider and identify ways to facilitate exchange, constraints on in-person encounter capabilities, and roles and responsibilities of healthcare stakeholders in facilitating change and implementation.
