PCORI is commissioning a rapid review to assess evidence on the effectiveness of synchronous video-teleconferencing (VTC) visits for disease prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. Because telemedicine visits have experienced swift and widespread adoption in the United States, PCORI seeks to understand the evidence base on a compressed timeline in order to inform our future research investments on video-delivered care.
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 VTC visits.
The goal of the rapid review is to assess the clinical effectiveness and potential harms of synchronous VTC visits, compared to in-person or usual care, and identify gaps in the current research.
