Abstract

This report provides a synthesis of relevant research evidence on the clinical and cost effectiveness of telehealth technologies for specialist-patient consultations in the fields of cardiology and dermatology. The report is intended to inform and assist decision makers in the Labrador-Grenfell Regional Health Authority, the Newfoundland and Labrador Department of Health and Community Services and the province’s other Regional Health Authorities by providing research evidence surrounding the effectiveness of telehealth consultation as an intervention for cardiology or dermatology patients. The findings of our synthesis are specifically interpreted for the context of Newfoundland and Labrador. Decision makers from other jurisdictions, particularly those with similar features in terms of potential clients, geography and resources, may also find the content helpful. The report includes explanations of research terms and technical language; as such, there is no need to have a specialized medical or health background to understand its content.
