Alexis Silver has been working to support the use of technology in the health care arena since 2001, first as a trade association professional and most recently, as a technical writer and consultant in the fields of telehealth and medical technology. In her previous role as working for statewide trade associations representing home care and hospice, she provided regulatory and program guidance to Certified and Licensed Home Care agencies as well as Hospices. As a telehealth advocate, she co-wrote legislation that led to Medicaid reimbursement for telehealth for New York State, and subsequently worked with the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) to design and implement New York's Home Telehealth Demonstration Project. She advocated successfully to include medication dispensers as eligible for reimbursement as an assistive technology for patients enrolled in New York's Long-Term Home Health Care Programs (LTHHCP - now MLTC).

In her role as an independent consultant, she has worked with multiple home health care providers developing and administering telehealth pilots and filling the role of first line of triage for telehealth patient monitoring while analyzing the system for efficiency improvements. She worked as a clinical project manager overseeing joint efforts with vendors in the development of several remote monitoring products and designing programs to support aging in place. She is an experienced writer and presenter and has presented to, among others, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Joint Commission, FEMA and the Institute of Medicine (IOM). She is currently chair of the American Telemedicine Association Home Telehealth and Remote Monitoring Special Interest Group and within that role, served as a formative member of the Clear Health Quality Institute's (now owned by URAC) Workgroup that established credentialing guidelines for Remote Patient Monitoring.
