The Center for Connected Health is working to create a new model for healthcare delivery, by developing programs and innovative strategies to move care from the hospital or doctor's office into the day-to-day lives of patients. Leveraging information technology - cell phones, computers, networked devices and simples remote health monitoring tools - the Center is helping providers and patients manage chronic conditions, maintain health and wellness, and improve adherence, engagement and clinical outcomes. By collecting and presenting accurate physiologic and behavioral data to both patients and providers, our connected health initiatives are facilitating data-driven coaching and as-needed provider involvement to help achieve patient care goals. Our technology-enabled programs in heart failure, hypertension, diabetes and other chronic conditions are being successfully integrated across the Partners HealthCare network and implemented by major employers. The Center also offers expert online second opinions, enhanced medical education and training, and engages in innovative research to discover new pathways to better care. Established in 1995, the Center Connected Health is a division of Partners HealthCare in Boston, founded by Brigham and Women's and Massachusetts General Hospitals.
