Maryland Health Leaders Network

Course 1: Leading Telehealth and Mobile Health Programs


Delivering cutting-edge research, training and professional insights around digital health strategy, operations and market opportunities.

Fostering peer relationships between those leaders responsible for providing and paying for care and developing solutions. 

Leading Telehealth and Mobile Health Programs is a one-day custom executive education program delivered by the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business through the Maryland Health Leaders Network. It was designed for healthcare industry executives responsible for leading the development of programs to improve care, advance competitiveness and create economic value through innovations in technology.  

If you are a health industry professional responsible for patient care programs, population management, innovation or quality, Leading Telehealth and Mobile Health Programs will help you discover ways to use healthcare technology more effectively and to infuse transformative change into your organization.

The Maryland Health Leaders Network aims to advance Maryland as a hub for health system excellence and innovation. It is the result of a collaborative effort by the Robert H. Smith School of Business’ Center for Health Information and Decision Systems (CHIDS) and the Office of Executive Programs (OEP), in partnership with the Maryland HealthTech Coalition, Howard Community College Workforce Development Program and the Tech Council of Maryland.

The inaugural Maryland Health Leaders Network program is focused on Telehealth and Mobile Health (“mhealth”)*. These technology domains are growing rapidly, fueled by advances in mobile technologies, smartphone and sensor usage, and expansion of broadband networks, as well as a changing policy landscape supporting reimbursement and penalizing quality issues such as certain readmissions.

Key Topics Include:

  • Strategies for telehealth and mhealth program development, adoption and integration
  • Current and emerging regulations and policies related to telehealth and mhealth
  • Management of telehealth and mhealth programs
  • Reimbursement and value creation with telehealth and mhealth programs
  • Telehealth and mhealth data analytics and interoperability
  • Telehealth and mhealth solution evaluation
