PCHAlliance has created a task force model to focus on trending industry issues in connected health which are common to PCHAlliance's mission and member interests.
Task force participation and content areas provide tangible benefits and results for membership, as the agenda for each task force is defined by members, including clear deliverables.
The purpose of each task force outlines PCHAlliance's position on the topic, as well as the intended impact on personal connected health, and the challenges being addressed, which can be directly tied to policy.
Task Force Chairs are identified from member organizations; each task force is comprised of 10-12 PCHAlliance members, as well as a small percentage of key, non-member opinion leaders.
Task forces will continue for a period of one year through June 2019.
The following task forces have launched in 2018:
- Aging and Technology - Finding ways personal connected health can optimize aging by keeping people vital, engaged and independent; improve the management of chronic diseases; and support caregivers.
- Blockchain - Provide thought leadership, education, advocacy and tangible strategies for companies looking to re-imagine their business models around this transformational technology.
- Digital Therapeutics - Advance personal connected digital solutions as a prescription substitute or adjunctive for traditional prescription therapy.
- Innovation – Engage in research, advocacy and outreach to promote connected health innovation and adoption; provide members with up-to-the-minute information and a vision for the future to inform business strategy; and maintain a thought leadership position for PCHAlliance.
