Study: Telehealth and Care Management Saved Up To $542 Per Person Per Quarter

A treatment program for chronically ill Medicare beneficiaries that included a telehealth tool and care management was associated with cost savings of approximately $312-$542 per person per quarter, according to a study published in Health Affairs.

Researchers studied two clinics that used a care coordination approach called the Health Buddy Program, which integrated telehealth and care management. Compared to the control group, care for patients in the Health Buddy Program cost approximately 7.7-13.3 percent — or $312-$542 — less per person per quarter.
