AHRQ released this report based on research conducted by the Pacific Northwest Evidence-based Practice Center (EPC). The information in this report is intended to help health care decision makers—patients and clinicians, health system leaders, and policymakers, among others—make well-informed decisions and thereby improve the quality of health care services.
The study identified 1,494 citations about telehealth, from which 58 systematic reviews met the inclusion criteria. There is sufficient evidence to support the effectiveness of telehealth for specific uses with some types of patients, including:
- Remote patient monitoring for patients with chronic conditions;
- Communication and counseling for patients with chronic conditions;
- Psychotherapy as part of behavioral health.
