Abstract

This chapter presents a guided framework for describing Remote Care Delivery Technologies (RCDT) in the processes of healthcare management among older patients diagnosed with chronic disease. To date, a process framework for the application of RCDT for chronic health conditions has not been systematically described, although much of the literature in RCDT, including telemedicine and telehealth, has focused on intervening with issues that involve the monitoring of chronic disease symptoms and the coordination of ongoing care. To elucidate how this process framework operates in managing chronic health conditions examples are provided from the published literature to clarify and differentiate each of the steps of this framework. A final section describes guidelines informed by this framework for providing RCDT in the management of chronic disease.
