State Telehealth Policy Framework

Medical Alley has always been at the forefront of healthcare transformation; the unique makeup of the Medical Alley ecosystem facilitates opportunities to innovate and collaborate that cannot be found elsewhere. Healthcare professionals and patients from around the world rely on Medical Alley’s leadership to identify and drive the developments defining the future of healthcare.

The transformation of healthcare delivery through the use of telehealth is no different. With a strong digital health industry, collaborative care delivery models, as well as providers and plans committed to improving the value of care, Medical Alley was already leading the enhanced integration and adoption of telehealth prior to the pandemic — leadership that was critical for the entire country as the COVID-19 pandemic evolved.

This framework is another chapter in Medical Alley’s history of leadership and identifies opportunities for policymakers in Minnesota to build on Medical Alley’s legacy of foresight in telehealth policy. By ensuring state law does not unnecessarily restrict innovation in care delivery, policymakers will promote increased access, lower costs, and improved outcomes for people throughout the state.

This framework provides policymakers with a lens through which to analyze existing and future telehealth policies.
