Research recommendations for the american telemedicine association.


Journal Article

The American Telemedicine Association (ATA) convened a panel of experts to generate a research agenda for the telemedicine community to further support and promote the long-term acceptance and use of telehealth. Three principles to guide research and four key areas within which research is greatly needed were identified. These four areas are technical, clinical, human factors and ergonomics, and economic analyses. It is the hope of the panel that the research recommendations put forth in this document will give investigators the inspiration, tools and goals to make this happen.
