New Hampshire residents would benefit from expanded use of telehealth and mobile health technologies that integrate behavioral and primary care, according to fosters.com

A report from the Institute for Health Policy and Practice at the Durham-based University of New Hampshire and the Concord-based NH Citizens Health Initiative found that telehealth and mHealth have a strong foundation in the state because of its technologically-savvy consumers, telecommunications infrastructure and rural setting. According to the report, New Hampshire should keep growing these programs.

"The behavioral health crisis in New Hampshire necessitates that we find innovative ways to provide better access to care," said Jeanne Ryer, EdD, director of the NH Citizens Health Initiative. "New Hampshire is a perfect place to bring these technologies together in our current efforts to integrate mental health care and physical health care."
