Connected Health Committee


The Connected Health Committee's mission is to inform, educate, and support those who develop, implement and use mobile and other personal health technologies for timely, secure data sharing, improved engagement and communication to support better health outcomes. The committee supports, demonstrates, and works toward the use of these technologies in a supportive environment which improves patient satisfaction and health outcomes, while enabling population health management and healthcare system efficiency.

The committee's work products will be resources that empower organizations and individuals to implement and adopt person-centric technologies. The work products will support healthcare's global shift toward the development of meaningful tools that are available "anytime and anywhere, remain secure, convenient, and engaging. This shift is occurring with the expectation that personal and community health is improved when individuals and providers have access to integrated data, tools that bring insights and support action, in an environment where system change is encouraged. 

The committee will address concepts including:

  • Data liquidity and interoperability of clinical, administrative, and consumer-generated data
  • Current process, design, attitude, and workflow challenges
  • Current best practices and new approaches that respect patient privacy and choice
  • Leveraging technology for equitable access to care

Topics addressed may include

  • Mobile devices and applications
  • Portals
  • Behavior change
  • Remote patient monitoring
  • Security
  • Telehealth
  • Access to health in remote, rural & underserved regions
  • Health-Tech Workforce development
