ADOPT Toolkit:

Helping Organizations Design and Implement Connected Health Technology

The Center for Technology and Aging’s ADOPT Toolkit will help you more quickly and easily design connected health technology-focused programs and to accelerate diffusion of proven technologies. The tools on this website build on the Center’s broad research and real-world experience and are designed for organizations committed to using connected health technology to dramatically improve chronic disease management.

Connected health technologies that assist care coordination and improve the independence of older adults cover a very wide spectrum. The ADOPT Toolkit offers tools in four areas: Remote Patient Monitoring, Medication Optimization, Care Transitions, and Mobile Health.

Select a toolkit below and then a specific tool from that area’s page and you will discover practical guides, checklists, lessons learned, and other valuable resources. Tools are further organized into Workstreams that help to simplify the complex steps required to successfully deploy a technology. Please share your feedback and comments and be sure to join our mailing list.

The Center for Connected Health (CCH) and the Center for Technology and Aging (CTA) supported by the California HealthCare Foundation (CHCF), have collaborated on the development of a tool for analyzing the Return on Investment (ROI) for remote patient monitoring technologies, enabling healthcare providers to evaluate the financial benefit of these technologies for patients with chronic heart disease. The ROI Tool helps health care providers determine the current ROI of an established RPM program as well as projecting ROI for future years. More about using the Toolkits >>
