💥 What’s the Big Deal: 

By following the policy agenda, the Pacific region 🌅 will enable more patients, especially those in rural and underserved areas, to access quality and timely healthcare services from various providers, regardless of their location, insurance status, or income level.💵 The Pacific region will also reduce the healthcare system's costs and inefficiencies and improve its population's health outcomes and satisfaction.
Telehealth is a promising and innovative way to provide medical care via phone, video, or the Internet. Telehealth can offer many benefits for the Pacific region, such as increasing access to care, especially for patients who live in remote or isolated areas or face transportation, mobility, or scheduling difficulties.✈️ 
Telehealth can also enhance the quality and efficiency of care by allowing patients to receive timely diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up and by reducing unnecessary hospitalizations, emergency visits, and travel costs. 🏥However, Telehealth faces many barriers and challenges, such as restrictive licensing, reimbursement, and privacy regulations, lack of broadband infrastructure and equipment, and low awareness and acceptance among patients and providers. 

The 2024 state policy agenda for telehealth innovation provides a comprehensive and practical guide for policymakers and stakeholders in the Pacific region to address these issues and to create a more conducive and supportive environment for telehealth services.
