• Telehealth Adoption and Outcomes in Underserved Populations During the Public Health Emergency: A Living Systematic Review
Lead researcher: Nicholas M. Mohr, MD, MS
COVID-19 has led to significant changes in telehealth policy, use, and research. The purpose of this living systematic review is to collate and summarize evidence testing telehealth interventions in the context of the global COVID-19 pandemic, with a focus on outcomes in underserved populations.
• Evaluation of Telehealth Services for Patients Treated with Pharmacotherapies for Opioid Use Disorder in the Veterans Health Administration
Using data from the Veterans Health Administration, we will evaluate the impact of telehealth services incorporated during treatment with buprenorphine or naltrexone for opioid use disorder on emergency department utilization, inpatient admissions, and mortality.
