We invite you to join us in creating a collaborative environment for the health care community and health services researchers to share and discover how telehealth technologies are being used in practice settings. The vision for the Innovation Exchange is to create a space where providers can find technology-enabled models of care that they can trust.
We are excited to engage with you and to hear about your innovative approaches to preventing, diagnosing and managing a variety of health conditions. We are currently seeking telehealth-enabled models of care for diabetes, cardiovascular disease and related conditions.
If you have a program model to share, please complete this questionnaire. Once the submission is reviewed, our Innovation Exchange team will be in touch with you!
Thank you for participating and growing this community and contributing to our collective impact!
The purpose of the Innovation Exchange (IE) section of the Telehealth Village (THV) is to invite participants to join in creating a collaborative environment for the health care community and health services researchers and share and/or discover how telehealth technologies are being used in practice settings. The vision for the Innovation Exchange is to create a space where providers can find technology-enabled models of care that they can trust.
If you have questions related to a program model, please use the discussion forum associated with that program model, located at the bottom of this page. If you have questions regarding Innovation Exchange, please click the “Contact Us” tab located in the toolbar at the top of the page.
We’re always on the lookout for other program models! Please share this site with anyone you know using telehealth or mHealth within their community.
Patients with Type 2 diabetes, who have a smart phone and internet access, sign up for the program through a website. They detail their condition - medications, activity level, dietary challenges, etc. Based on this questionnaire, they will receive daily texts - prompting them to exercise, take their insulin, making a healthy choice. Most patients had very positive feedback, many improved their diabetes control.

Type II diabetics sign up for this program. The pilot study had financial incentive. Patient is received texts multiple times a day depending on their needs and their complexity of diabetes. Most reported very positive feedback, improvement in A1c's, felt like texting helped him stay on track, improved glucose testing and medication compliance.
I am raising awareness of sensor use, to replace finger stick blood sugar monitoring, both for the ease of use by my patients, and the greater quantity/quality of data that I receive. This can in turn be data that is cloud based and secure, and therefore requires little effort on part of the patients, with no downloading/internet required on their part. Data can be entered into EMR to be shared by all caregivers.

This is a cardiovascular risk calculator. It will calculate your patient's 10 year risk for heart disease based on age, sex, race, blood pressure, cholesterol, diabetes and smoking status, and use of hypertension medications, statin and aspirin. In addition to calculating the risk, the app provides suggestions for blood pressure, lipid and aspirin therapy. In general I use this to show patients who are reluctant to start ...
The program utilizes the following technology: telehealth with Jabber based patient interviews, Telcare Meters with cloud based information system, Nutrisystem D meal replacements, glucommander -outpatient algorithmic insulin decision making, DEXCOM D6 contiunuous glucose monitoring.
We have a diabetic retinopathy screening (DRS) program at UVA Ophthalmology, which UVA Telehealth has administered for the past several years. I'm the lead on that DRS program for two grant-funded projects (with major funding from Virginia Department of Health as well as the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors, both with funding via the CDC), which extends the department's reach into multiple sites ...
Currently, we are only accepting clinical use case studies related to the prevention and management of diabetes and/or cardiovascular disease.
