How Ingenium Addresses Healthcare Leadership's Common QuestionsConcernsChallenges

Where Must We Invest
in Digital Health?

Across the vast spectrum of digital health opportunities, where should we invest our time and money to achieve our strategic goals?

Which ones are right for us?

Ingenium's Experience

Exploring and prioritizing a variety of options is the main purview of strategy. A Digital Health or Telehealth Strategy will aid the organization’s prioritization process.

Sample Experience: For a rural health system in New England, Christian developed a digital health strategy to guide their investments over the next 3 years.

Resources: Here are a couple of articles on that topic of Digital Health Strategy:

How Can We Adopt
Digital Innovation
in 6 weeks?

How can we accelerate the adoption of digital innovation?

How can we identify, evaluate, select, validate and disseminate innovative solutions in weeks
not years?


Most healthcare systems take 12-36 months to truly implement innovative concepts and most never get to full implementation.

Through a set of systems, principles and processes, we can get this down to 12-18 weeks.

This is going to be a key competitive differentiator.

What Are Our
Best Options for
Virtual Care?

Virtual Care is definitely here to stay, but now there are so many options.

What are our best options?
What should we spend our money on? What should our roadmap be, which services do we work on first?

What telehealth technologies should we use or limit ourselves to?

How do we operationalize in-person and virtual care most effectively?


Christian has been developing and implemented telehealth strategies for health systems for over 8 years now.

Here’s some of Christian’s writing on that topic:

How Can We Make
Telehealth More Mature?

What can we do to systematically take our telehealth program
to the next level?

How can we move from merely implementing telehealth to using it strategically or even to transform the way we deliver our care to our patients?


Christian has developed a telehealth program maturity model that can serve as a roadmap to help organizations to reach their goals.

How Can We Get
the Most Out of Telehealth?

We need to get more value
out of our telehealth services.

They feel immature. There is a lot
of variation and we don't have good insights into the performance.

How do we optimize,
how do we standardize —
how do we become the best?


There are a number of very quick ways to improve telehealth. It all starts with identifying the biggest performance gaps, understanding how telehealth can fail and then check on whether your telehealth services have the 6 hallmarks of success.

Which Telehealth Technology
is Best for Us?

Should we go with the solution
built into the EMR
or go for telehealth-dedicated technology?

What about specialty solutions
for TeleStroke or
Ad-hoc TeleUrgentCare?


Actually, Telehealth is very little about the technology. Telehealth is mostly about the workflows and mostly about successful change management.

What Should Our Overall
Digital Health Strategy be?

We are concerned about our organization's ability to effectively keep up with the pace of innovation that's being thrown at us.

A lot of the terms may just be buzzwords and fads. But we are also concerned about our direct and indirect competitors that may be better at using the digital innovation that is available.


Developing and following a digital health strategy is the first step to making optimal choices regarding the investment of time and money.

Our new offering “Accelerating (Digital Health) Innovation Adoption” is addressing that particular question: Most healthcare systems take at least 12-18 months to evaluate and disseminate novel solutions into the respective practices. We can get this down to 12-18 weeks.
