- Short term: Shared understanding of multi-stakeholder perspectives on existing research, including awareness of relevant research among Medicaid patients, Medicaid payers (managed care and FFS), and clinicians serving Medicaid patients. Identification of concordant and disparate interests in further information about telehealth utilization for mental health to inform research. Recommendations for enhanced dissemination of impactful research.
- Medium term: Recommendations on PCOR/CER projects for effective and equitable expansion of tele-mental health based on a framework of shared priorities (e.g., primary care involvement; mobile access; medication management; expanded quality metrics).
- Long term: Replication of the convening methodology to inform PCOR/CER on tele-mental health access in Medicare and commercial populations; insights into engagement processes that are relevant to involving vulnerable populations in research design.
