We are the Center for
Connected Health Policy

Our mission is to advance state and national telehealth policies that promote better systems of care and improved health outcomes, as well as provide more equitable access to quality, affordable health care and services.

We play a few different roles within the telehealth policy landscape.

CCHP is a program
under the Public
Health Institute

Established in 2008 with funding from the California Health Care Foundation, our work was originally focused exclusively on California telehealth policy. We published the Telehealth Model Statute Report in 2011, which became the basis for the California Telehealth Advancement Act of 2011 (AB 415) and cemented our position as experts in telehealth policy. Under PHI, we act as a catalyst for change by providing nonpartisan, unbiased, and research-based analyses, reports, and telehealth resources to policy makers, the private healthcare sector, health plans, academic researchers, and consumer health advocates.

We also continue to be dedicated to advancing California’s leadership in telehealth policy, and head up the California Telehealth Policy Coalition, a group of over 100 consumer groups, medical systems, payers, providers, and technology representatives.

We’re also the
National Telehealth
Policy Resource

In 2012, after our Telehealth Model Statute Report garnered extensive attention, CCHP received a grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to become the federally designated National Telehealth Policy Resource Center. In this capacity, we serve as an independent center of excellence in telehealth policy, and provide technical assistance to twelve regional Telehealth Resource Centers (TRCs), state and federal policy makers, national organizations, health systems, providers, and the public.
