Increase in population is causing further increase in senior population which is the major cost factor in health care. Health information technology has been cited as one of the tools to help reduce this cost for this group of patients. Therefore, our study explores strategies and policies helping reduce the barriers for the adoption of a health information technology – teleconsultation – for senior population. The objective of this research is to develop a model to evaluate alternative solutions to increase the adoption of Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) for the senior population. The research leverages hierarchical decision modeling (HDM) to build a hierarchical multi criteria assessment model. The model elements are derived through literature and validated by an expert panel.
