The chapter summarizes participants’ use of the technology, intervention effects on intermediate clinical outcomes, intervention effects on Medicare services’ use and cost, and demonstration costs during the two phases. It also discusses policy implications of the findings in the context of health reform, particularly the potential role of home telemedicine in Medicare.
