What is Connect Health? Connected Health is a model for healthcare delivery that uses technology to provide healthcare remotely. Connected Health aims to maximize healthcare resources and provide increased, flexible opportunities for consumers to engage with clinicians and better self-manage their care. Connected Health uses technology to deliver patient care outside of the traditional care setting. There are many tools to enable connected health that a Healthcare provider requires.
