Members of the Collaborative for Telehealth & Aging (C4TA) created a set of recommended principles for delivering telehealth to older adults to account for their unique needs. Each principle has associated guidelines that serve as more specific goals that telehealth programs and providers can aim to achieve.

Equitable & Accessible
All people should have equal access to the same level of high-quality care regardless of age, ability, socio-economic status, or health and technology literacy
Older adults should be at the center of decision-making—accounting for their care preferences, goals, wishes, abilities, support system, and conditions
Integrated & Coordinated
Systems should facilitate access to the information and support necessary to provide quality care to older adults, including communication between and within systems and stakeholders
