CHN Advanced Technologies / E-Health / Telemedicine

“Brave New World” Tech Ushers in Futuristic "Age of Aging"

Technology Infrastructure   CHN/CCS will maximize the systemic use of Advanced Technologies including AI, eHealth, IoT, and Telemedicine in all facets of company endeavors, including protocol deployment, documentation, and metrics.

CHN Implementation & Portal  The technology functionalities necessary for effective Conscious Health Network, LLC (CHN) implementation will provide an over-arching infrastructure and portal for multiple purposes including comprehensive informatics, training, marketing, distribution, finance, regulation, and documentation.

CHN IP Content for Telehealth   Conscious Health Network is prepared to share its content-rich IP with an established and progressive telehealth company (TELCO) and expects this affiliation to be instrumental in the further development of CHN Information Technology Systems and all-inclusive software libraries.

Cross-Pollination  This company is also expected to add their own service suites to CHN broad-based architecture and cross-pollinate with CHN where advantageous. In addition, CHN management, administration, financial services, training, accountability, marketing, branding, etc., can be of reciprocal value to its telehealth partner.

Hybrid Delivery Models  TELCO may participate in, and offer to their current clients, intergenerational, as well as LTSS-based (long-term services & supports) programs and services oriented to hybridized CHN and TELCO delivery models.

Reward-based Portals  Each individual client will be provided an extensive and customized blueprint/roadmap to help achieve optimal wellness and lifestyle improvement. A reward-based Portal, along with tailored education and training, will contribute to successful outcomes.

Corruption-Proof System  When combined with the sound vision and management expertise of the CHN/CCS team, the competencies of a solid technology affiliate, incorporates codified CCS protocols, will provide efficiencies and growth opportunities, in addition to a long-needed corruption-proof system for LTSS.

Accountability Benchmark  CHN/CCS anticipates and welcomes government involvement and oversight, and a “CCS-Certified” mandate will ideally serve as a benchmark accountability measure for highest practicable care and services and greatly reduced expenditures in LTC. Bold projections of 30+% savings (including revenue enhancements) are presumed to be achieved within 2 years or less per LTSS entity.

Expedited Rollout  A CMS mandate would ensure a more expansive rollout with commensurate resources, and an expedited timeline. CCS will surpass CMS regulations for all its owned or managed locations, as well as those LTSS provider sites that become CCS-Certified.

CHN / TELCO Value Proposition  There are many ways that the above TELCO/CHN association is valuable to each entity. CHN will recommend, license, bundle or otherwise promote TELCO services to their clientele and provide incentives to utilize TELCO products, and the TELCO may reciprocate as viable.

TELCO Competencies   The TELCO’s existing capacities to provide Telehealth services, IT support, etc., can enhance the full range of: CHN programs and training; administrative services; policies and procedures; and regulatory compliance, as well as expanding market penetration.

Smart Technology  is foundational to the strategic deployment of CHN, The TELCO will help ensure efficient program implementation and meaningful analyses and will support each client and community’s continuing progress, per customized CHN protocols.

Portals, Hubs, Cross Benefits  CHN intends to move ahead aggressively with its TELCO partner, and as described, there are numerous cross-benefits for each. From securing access to multi-function Internet portals and IT business hubs, to providing various certification options and promoting endorsements from government agencies, the companies can profit commensurate with their participation in each other’s action plans.

TELCO Resources & Status   CHN can clearly benefit from a well-established TELCO’s contributions to CHN programs, services, products and business models, including relevant Intellectual Property (IP) and status in the telehealth industry.

Goals & Tactics  It is expected that an agreement with CHN with its extensive IP, strong management team, and connections to various market segments and investors may also help the TELCO to achieve its own strategic goals. CHN and the TELCO may collaborate on operational, distribution and marketing tactics intended to advance each company, and the parties may co-develop marketing materials for promotional purposes in various sectors.

CHN Software Libraries  Although CHN Wellness, Prevention & Lifestyle software systems will be accessible to potential TELCO competitors, each of the two companies will make contributions to the other’s IP products and services and be in sync with monetization practices.

Timid Telehealth   To date, most telehealth/telemedicine companies have done little to improve standard medical content available online, and many provide only limited access to, or recommendations for, various modalities and treatments, or trustworthy informational / educational content.

CHN, TELCO, & IM   Authenticated Integrative Medicine (IM) libraries and extensive Wellness, Prevention and Lifestyle systems, as provided by CHN, will be an integral component of a CHN and TELCO association. Truly progressive Integrative Medicine information is not currently available through any telehealth provider that is known to CHN.

CHN Beta-Pilot Priorities  It is anticipated that a CHN beta pilot will be implemented in an LTC setting, preferably a multi-tiered Continuing Care Retirement Community (with an affordable Lifecare plan option).

Proof Positive  A CCRC or other facility-type, that includes federally regulated skilled care, will provide the best site for further proof of CHN/CCS protocol efficacy, in part, because of the undeniable results automatically documented through the federal Minimum Data Set / Resident Assessment Instrument (MDS/RAI).

CCRCs & Intergenerational Programs  A CCRC that offers various levels of LTC (Independent, Assisted, Skilled, Memory, Adult Day Services, Homecare, & Hospice), plus intergenerational opportunities, can provide the ideal venue / campus setting to showcase tiered CNH models, resulting in CHN and CCS certifications.

CCS Protocols  Extensive and detailed implementation protocols are described in Conscious Care Systems (CCS) business plans, financials, manuals, etc., to include a three-month ramp-up and subsequent six-month beta-pilot phase.

Ever-Young Boomers  CHN Wellness and Prevention programs, now referenced as I-WELL (Integrative Wellness & Lifestyle Systems), have always been part of the Company’s rollout strategy. The ever-evolving acceptance and mainstream / boomer appeal of Integrative Medicine (IM), as well as the “Anti-Aging / Healthy Aging” phenomenon is very good for CHN/CCS.

MDS Holy Grail  Program integration allows for many more viable – and even pioneering – IM modalities to be included in beta-pilots, with their efficacies tracked and verified through the MDS/RAI (i.e., the “Holy Grail of LTC”).

Technology and the Future of Healthcare
Significance for public health

Technology drives healthcare more than any other force, and in the future it will continue to develop in dramatic ways. While we can glimpse and debate the details of future trends in healthcare, we need to be clear about the drivers so we can align with them and actively work to ensure the best outcomes for society as a whole.

10 Ways Technology is Changing Healthcare Dr. Bertalan Mesko, PhD

Technological advancements are revolutionizing healthcare. Here are 10 groundbreaking technologies that will strongly determine how medicine will be practiced in the future.

The future of healthcare is shaping up in front of our very eyes with advances in digital healthcare technologies, such as artificial intelligence, VR/AR, 3D-printing, robotics or nanotechnology. We have to familiarize ourselves with the latest developments in order to be able to control technology and not the other way around.

The future of healthcare lies in working hand-in-hand with technology. Healthcare workers have to embrace emerging healthcare technologies in order to stay relevant in the coming years.

Recent Advancements in Emerging Technologies for Healthcare Management Systems: A Survey


In recent times, the growth of the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), and Blockchain technologies have quickly gained pace as a new study niche in numerous collegiate and industrial sectors, notably in the healthcare sector. Recent advancements in healthcare delivery have given many patients access to advanced personalized healthcare, which has improved their well-being. The subsequent phase in healthcare is to seamlessly consolidate these emerging technologies such as IoT-assisted wearable sensor devices, AI, and Blockchain collectively.

Surprisingly, owing to the rapid use of smart wearable sensors, IoT and AI-enabled technology are shifting healthcare from a conventional hub-based system to a more personalized healthcare management system (HMS). However, implementing smart sensors, advanced IoT, AI, and Blockchain technologies synchronously in HMS remains a significant challenge. Prominent and reoccurring issues such as scarcity of cost-effective and accurate smart medical sensors, unstandardized IoT system architectures, heterogeneity of connected wearable devices, the multidimensionality of data generated, and high demand for interoperability are vivid problems affecting the advancement of HMS.

Hence, this survey paper presents a detailed evaluation of the application of these emerging technologies (Smart Sensor, IoT, AI, Blockchain) in HMS to better understand the progress thus far. Specifically, current studies and findings on the deployment of these emerging technologies in healthcare are investigated, as well as key enabling factors, noteworthy use cases, and successful deployments.

Centers for Medicare & Medicaid / CMS

The CMS strategic plan for the next few years is focused on achieving a transformed and modernized health care system for the 21st century. CMS will support the transformation of the health care system to one through which patients and providers can make informed decisions together about the most effective medical care, based on timely access to the latest evidence. The transformed system will include, among other things, secure electronic records, e-prescribinq, the development of an integrated data repository to improve access to quality data, and the meaningful use of electronic records to positively affect the quality of patient care.

E-Health General Information

E-health refers to the use of web-enabled systems and processes to accomplish some combination of the following goals:

  • Improve or enhance medical care
  • Improve patient involvement in their medical care and their overall satisfaction with the health care experience
  • Streamline operations and business practices
  • Control expenditures.

A large number of e-health initiatives are underway by leaders in health care, government and hi-tech industries, in an attempt to harness the benefits of combining technology, the internet and health care.  The expansion of e-health capabilities will allow medicine and technology to meet, and conquer the same challenges faced by other industries over the past 20 years:  1) the capability of consumers to obtain, view or interact with their information online and 2) improved possibilities for the electronic exchange of data.  In other words, providers will be able to communicate with their patients and each other in ways that are more efficient and that could offer access to more accurate information that will positively affect the overall healthcare experience.

Increasing evidence and documentation in the literature show that electronic systems and processes are truly the vehicle by which healthcare can broaden the accessibility of applications, facilitate user exchange of information, and collapse time, distance, and the “information divide” to better deliver care to the patient population.

What is eHealth?: a systematic review of published definitions

Data synthesis: The 51 unique definitions that we retrieved showed a wide range of themes, but no clear consensus about the meaning of the term eHealth. We identified two universal themes (health and technology) and six less general (commerce, activities, stakeholders, outcomes, place, and perspectives).

Conclusions: The widespread use of the term eHealth suggests that it is an important concept, and that there is a tacit understanding of its meaning.This compendium of proposed definitions may improve communication among the many individuals and organizations that use the term.

eHealth describes healthcare services which are supported by digital processes, communication or technology such as electronic prescribing, Telehealth, or Electronic Health Records (EHRs). The use of electronic processes in healthcare dated back to at least the 1990s.[1] Usage of the term varies as it covers not just “Internet medicine” as it was conceived during that time, but also “virtually everything related to computers and medicine”.[2]

A study in 2005 found 51 unique definitions.[3] Some argue that it is interchangeable with health informatics with a broad definition covering electronic/digital processes in health[4] while others use it in the narrower sense of healthcare practice using the Internet.[5][6][7] It can also include health applications and links on mobile phones, referred to as mHealth or m-Health.[8] Key components of eHealth include electronic health records (EHRs), telemedicine, health information exchange, mobile health applications, wearable devices, and online health information. These technologies enable healthcare providers, patients, and other stakeholders to access, manage, and exchange health information more effectively, leading to improved communication, decision-making, and overall healthcare outcomes.


The term can encompass a range of services or systems that are at the edge of medicine/healthcare and information technology, including:

  • Electronic health record: enabling the communication of patient data between different healthcare professionals (GPs, specialists etc.);
  • Computerized physician order entry: a means of requesting diagnostic tests and treatments electronically and receiving the results
  • ePrescribing: access to prescribing options, printing prescriptions to patients and sometimes electronic transmission of prescriptions from doctors to pharmacists
  • Clinical decision support system:providing information electronically about protocols and standards for healthcare professionals to use in diagnosing and treating patients[9]
  • Telemedicine: physical and psychological diagnosis and treatments at a distance, including telemonitoring of patients functions and videoconferencing;[10]
  • Telerehabilitation: providing rehabilitation services over a distance through telecommunications.
  • Telesurgery: use robots and wireless communication to perform surgery remotely.[11]
  • Teledentistry: exchange clinical information and images over a distance. [12]
  • Consumer health informatics: use of electronic resources on medical topics by healthy individuals or patients;
  • Health knowledge management: e.g. in an overview of latest medical journals, best practice guidelines or epidemiological tracking (examples include physician resources such as Medscape and MDLinx);
  • Virtual healthcare teams:consisting of healthcare professionals who collaborate and share information on patients through digital equipment (for transmural care)
  • mHealth or m-Health includes the use of mobile devices in collecting aggregate and patient-level health data, providing healthcare information to practitioners, researchers, and patients, real-time monitoring of patient vitals, and direct provision of care (via mobile telemedicine);
  • Medical research using grids: powerful computing and data management capabilities to handle large amounts of heterogeneous data. [13]
  • Health informatics / healthcare information systems also often refer to software solutions for appointment scheduling, patient data management, work schedule management and other administrative tasks surrounding health. There can be integrated data collection platforms for devices and standards and require extended research.[14]
  • Internet Based Sources for Public Health Surveillance (Infoveillance)[15]


Telehealth is a broad term that encompasses a variety of telecommunications technologies and tactics to provide health services from a distance. Telehealth is not a specific clinical service, but rather a collection of means to enhance care and education delivery.

What does telehealth mean?

Telehealth sometimes called telemedicine lets your health care provider care for you without an in-person office visit. Telehealth is done primarily online with internet access on your computer, tablet, or smartphone.

There are several options for telehealth care:

  • Talk to your health care provider live over the phone or video chat.
  • Send and receive messages from your health care provider using secure messaging, email, and secure file exchange.
  • Use remote monitoring so your health care provider can check on you at home. For example, you might use a device to gather vital signs to help your health care provider stay informed on your progress.

There are many options to access telehealth if you don't have a stable internet connection or device connected to the internet. Read more about how to get help with access to telehealth.
