PCORI commissioned a rapid review to assess evidence on the effectiveness of telehealth strategies for the delivery of maternal health care. Because telemedicine has experienced a swift and widespread adoption in the United States, PCORI sought to understand the evidence base on a compressed timeline in order to inform our future research investments.
In addition to PCORI’s programmatic needs, PCORI aims to support the decisions of healthcare professionals, policy makers, and healthcare organizations with timely and high-quality evidence about telehealth strategies to deliver preconception, prenatal, intrapartum, and postpartum care.
The goal of the rapid review is to assess the clinical effectiveness and potential harms of telehealth strategies intended to supplement or replace usual care, including alternative care models or strategies with multiple telehealth components.
