Innovation Exchange

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!

What is IE?

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.

How can someone submit a program model for consideration on IE?
  1. In order to submit a program model, the clinical champion (CC) will need to create an account on THV / IE page.
  2. Once an account is created, the CC will hit the “Registration Form” button
  3. The CC will complete the online questionnaire for approval by IE team members.
  4. Once approved, or if any questions arise, the CC will be contact by a member of the IE team to answer any questions about the first questionnaire, and complete either 1) a video interview or 2) an additional questionnaire.
  5. Once all CC program model information is collected, there will be one more review process by the IE team. Upon final approval, the program model will be uploaded for public viewing.
What do I do if I have a question about IE?
