The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) hosted a discussion about telehealth during the COVID-19 pandemic and how lessons learned from our research portfolio can help inform policymakers' decisions about the future of telehealth.

This briefing featured PCORI funding updates on telehealth and COVID-19 as well as key takeaways and themes from PCORI’s telehealth portfolio that can inform ongoing discussions by Congressional staff and policy makers on the current and post-COVID landscape of telehealth policy. PCORI-funded researchers Ray Dorsey, MD, MBA, and Maureen Hensley-Quinn, MPA, shared lessons, opportunities, and challenges of the application of telehealth during COVID-19 from the provider perspective along with telehealth policy insights from states that may be useful to Congress.
