It is doubtful that any new health care delivery system using computer and telecommunication technologies will be successful without the activepartnership of health care clients in the conceptualization, implementation, and evaluation of these new models of health care. The Hawaii Telehealth Care Community Assessment Survey (HI TCAS) was developed as part of a one year planning initiative toward the establishment of a policy and process foundation for the effective use of telehealth care in the state ofHawaii. The HI TCAS is an initial eflort to gather information that can be used to facilitate collaboration between health care clients andproviders and corporate and government organizations.
