Unfortunately, investigations of performance validity tests (PVT) delivered via TeleNP are sparse. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to examine the specificity of the Reliable Digit Span (RDS) and 21-item test administered via telephone. METHOD: Participants were 51 veterans with moderate-to-severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). All participants completed the RDS and 21-item test in the context of a larger TeleNP battery. Specificity rates were examined across multiple cutoffs for both PVTs. RESULTS: Consistent with research employing traditional face-to-face neuropsychological evaluations, both PVTs maintained adequate specificity (i.e., > 90%) across previously established cutoffs. Specifically, defining performance invalidity as RDS < 7 or 21-item test forced choice total correct < 11 led to < 10%false positive classification errors. CONCLUSIONS: Findings add to the limited body of research examining and provide preliminary support for the use of the RDS and 21-item test in TeleNP via telephone. Both measures maintained adequate specificity in veterans with moderate-to-severe TBI. Future investigations including clinical or experimental "feigners" in a counter-balanced cross-over design (i.e., face-to-face vs. TeleNP) are recommended.<br/>(AN 153066911); ISSN: 10538135<br/>CINAHL Complete Factors Affecting Telehealth Availability Among Breast Centers During the Pandemic. https://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=ccm&AN=152849567&site=ehost-live TI remote consultation OR "remote consultation" OR "remote consultation" OR telecommunications O urn:uuid:b3a983a7-eec9-d5f9-9443-f08b703eb64f Wed, 03 Nov 2021 04:00:00 +0000 Journal of the American College of Surgeons;

11/01/2021<br/>Background: During the COVID 19 pandemic, direct-to-consumer telehealth (DTC) services allowed patients real-time virtual access to healthcare providers, especially those with an established relationship. In Colombia, this care modality was implemented between 2019 and 2020, under national considerations, it was implemented for outpatient care in a highly complex university hospital in Cali, Colombia.Methods: A descriptive study with prospective information collection was used to describe the implementation of the outpatient teleconsultation care model for patients. We constructed the clinical and process indicators with which we evaluated the model.Findings: A total of 56,560 patients from our institution were treated by virtual outpatient consultation during the first nine months of the health emergency declared by COVID 19 in Colombia. The strategy made it possible to achieve coverage more significant than 100% in Cali and the departments of Colombia. Attention by teleconsultation was 19% of the total ambulatory care. The effectiveness in carrying out scheduled teleconsultations had an overall result of 91.5%. The accessibility results demonstrated the need to strengthen connectivity and accessibility to payments and strengthen technology adoption in the institution, health personnel, and patients.Interpretation: Implementing an outpatient teleconsultation model allowed the continuity of the management with comprehensive coverage nationwide from a highly complex hospital in southwestern Colombia. The indicators' analysis should help strengthen the policies of access to telemedicine, especially with the consequences of the pandemic in low- and middle-income countries. Latin American evidence is necessary to establish the safety profile of telemedicine and the costs associated with the provision.<br/>(AN 152773951); ISSN: 13865056<br/>CINAHL Complete The feasibility of home self-assessment of vital signs and symptoms: A new key to telehealth for individuals? https://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=ccm&AN=152773953&site=ehost-live TI remote consultation OR "remote consultation" OR "remote consultation" OR telecommunications O urn:uuid:72feca61-3044-874c-b467-79a77c97625b Mon, 01 Nov 2021 04:00:00 +0000 International Journal of Medical Informatics; 11/01/2021<br/>Objective: During the COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing and self-isolation called for innovative, readily implementable, and effective short-term health solutions. The objective of this study was to assess the feasibility of self-assessment of vital signs and symptoms with electronic transmission of results, by self-isolating individuals with positive SARS-CoV-2 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test. The secondary objective was to describe the association between the presence of abnormal vital signs and severe symptoms as well as their evolution over time.Method: Participants with positive SARS-CoV-2 PCR test were asked to perform twice daily standardized vital signs measurements and self-assessment of symptoms for 14 consecutive days. All data were transmitted electronically through a mobile application and a web-based platform. Participants were provided with decision support tools based on the severity of their condition and a weekly nurse practitioner telephone follow-up. Abnormal values for vital signs and severe symptoms were determined. Per participant and per days, proportions of abnormal vital signs and severe symptoms were calculated.Results: Data from 46 participants (mean age 54.1 ± 6.9 years, 54% male) were available for analysis. On average, participants performed the standardized self-assessment for 12.3 ± 3.4 days (89% performed at least 7 measurement days and 61% completed all 14 days). The highest proportions abnormal values for vital signs were for oximetry (20.1%) and respiratory rate (12.1%). The highest proportions of severe symptoms were for fatigue (16.9%) and myalgia. (10.2%). The combined proportion of abnormal vital signs and severe symptoms was maximal on day 1 with 20.3% of total measurements, with a linear decrease to 3.5% on day 14.Conclusion: Remote initiation of home measurements of vital signs and symptoms, self-management of these measures, accompanied by a decision support tool and supported by preplanned nurse follow-up are feasible. This could allow to opening up new insight for the care of sick individuals.<br/>(AN 152773953); ISSN: 13865056<br/>CINAHL Complete Remote patient monitoring after cardiac surgery: The utility of a novel telemedicine system. https://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=ccm&AN=152763384&site=ehost-live TI remote consultation OR "remote consultation" OR "remote consultation" OR telecommunications O urn:uuid:279453e2-489c-916c-f74e-f133f58fd745 Mon, 01 Nov 2021 04:00:00 +0000 Journal of Cardiac Surgery; 11/01/2021<br/>(AN 152763384); ISSN: 08860440<br/>CINAHL Complete Telemedicine in neuro-ophthalmology. https://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=ccm&AN=152797320&site=ehost-live TI remote consultation OR "remote consultation" OR "remote consultation" OR telecommunications O urn:uuid:a46620c3-9abd-d7ca-9810-7a5115517246 Mon, 01 Nov 2021 04:00:00 +0000 Current Opinion in Ophthalmology; 11/01/2021<br/>Purpose Of Review: The COVID-19 public health emergency accelerated the adoption of telemedicine in neuro-ophthalmology. This review surveys the current telemedicine landscape and discusses associated limitations and opportunities.Recent Findings: Logistic considerations and regulatory changes related to the COVID-19 pandemic have spurred a proliferation of tele-neuro-ophthalmic practice. One significant benefit of telemedicine is increased access to the limited number of neuro-ophthalmologists in the country. Certain elements of the neuro-ophthalmic examination can be ascertained during a video visit or through the use of mobile applications. However, data quality can be limited and more direct evaluation of the fundus currently requires the implementation of imaging techniques, such as fundus photography and/or optical coherence tomography. For cases that require it, a 'hybrid' model can be adopted in which patients physically present to designated locations for testing and subsequently participate in televisit with the physician to discuss the assessment and plan.Summary: Telemedicine provides an alternate pathway for patients to access the limited resource of neuro-ophthalmic care, and it will likely persist beyond the current COVID-19 pandemic. It has some limitations currently but continued progress in technologic, legal, and reimbursement strategies will hopefully facilitate further adoption.<br/>(AN 152797320); ISSN: 10408738<br/>CINAHL Complete Surgical Weight Loss Patient Experience with Telehealth During Covid-19: Should Telehealth Remain an Option after the Pandemic? https://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=ccm&AN=152849151&site=ehost-live TI remote consultation OR "remote consultation" OR "remote consultation" OR telecommunications O urn:uuid:2054df7d-21f5-64b1-1a61-eb64adcc7a37 Mon, 01 Nov 2021 04:00:00 +0000 Journal of the American College of Surgeons;

11/01/2021<br/>Objective: The aim of this study was to test whether a physician-supervised web-based app, integrated with an electronic medical record, helps in improving blood pressure (BP) management in clinical practice.Materials and Methods: An observational study of 1633 patients seen at a hypertension clinic managed by an endocrinologist with two cohorts (726 adopted the app and 907 had not). The app allowed patients and doctors to monitor BP, blood sugar and other vital signs. Patients decided whether to opt in to using the app and how often to upload their readings. The provider could offer feedback and communicate with patients through the app. We evaluated the change in office-based BP measurement before and after app adoption (at least 12 months apart). We performed a difference-in-difference analysis along with matching based on patient-individual characteristics.Results: The difference-in-difference estimates were 6.23 mmHg systolic [95% confidence interval (95% CI) 0.87-11.59] for patients with SBP 150 mmHg or above, 4.01 mmHg systolic (95% CI 1.11-6.91) for patients with SBP 140 mmHg or above, 4.37 mmHg diastolic (95% CI 1.06-7.68) for patients with DBP 90 mmHg or above, 1.89 mmHg systolic (95% CI 0.58-3.2) and 0.87 mmHg diastolic (95% CI 0.17-1.57) overall for an average patient. Higher frequency of app usage was also associated with a greater reduction in BP.Conclusion: Use of an mHealth app in a clinical practice, was associated with a significant reduction in BP for average patients as well as high-severity patients. Physician-supervised mHealth apps in a clinical practice could be instrumental in managing patient BP.<br/>(AN 152889311); ISSN: 02636352<br/>CINAHL Complete Mobile health technology to improve maternal health awareness in tribal populations: mobile for mothers. https://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=ccm&AN=152975107&site=ehost-live TI remote consultation OR "remote consultation" OR "remote consultation" OR telecommunications O urn:uuid:e0f158a8-df64-a740-5ba6-001b1f4d2c30 Mon, 01 Nov 2021 04:00:00 +0000 Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association; 11/01/2021<br/>Mobile health (mHealth) applications have the potential to improve health awareness. This study reports a quasi-controlled intervention to augment maternal health awareness among tribal pregnant mothers through the mHealth application. Households from 2 independent villages with similar socio-demographics in tribal regions of India were selected as intervention (Village A) and control group (Village B). The control group received government mandated programs through traditional means (orally), whereas the intervention group received the same education through mHealth utilization. Postintervention, awareness about tetanus injections and consumption of iron tablets was significantly (P < .001) improved in the intervention group by 55% and 58%, respectively. Awareness about hygiene significantly (P < .001) increased by 57.1%. In addition, mothers in the intervention group who recognized vaginal bleeding, severe abdominal pain, severe blurring of vision, or convulsions as danger signs during pregnancy significantly (P < .001) increased by 18.30%, 23.2%, 20.0%, and 4.90%, respectively. Our study indicates that despite the low literacy of users, mHealth intervention can improve maternal health awareness among tribal communities.<br/>(AN 152975107); ISSN: 10675027<br/>CINAHL Complete Mobile health applications for older adults: a systematic review of interface and persuasive feature design. https://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=ccm&AN=152975093&site=ehost-live TI remote consultation OR "remote consultation" OR "remote consultation" OR telecommunications O urn:uuid:a634e705-0d09-f502-509d-5ce97dd7c1f1 Mon, 01 Nov 2021 04:00:00 +0000 Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association; 11/01/2021<br/>Objective: Mobile-based interventions have the potential to promote healthy aging among older adults. However, the adoption and use of mobile health applications are often low due to inappropriate designs. The aim of this systematic review is to identify, synthesize, and report interface and persuasive feature design recommendations of mobile health applications for elderly users to facilitate adoption and improve health-related outcomes.Materials and Methods: We searched PubMed, Embase, PsycINFO, CINAHL, and Scopus databases to identify studies that discussed and evaluated elderly-friendly interface and persuasive feature designs of mobile health applications using an elderly cohort.Results: We included 74 studies in our analysis. Our analysis revealed a total of 9 elderly-friendly interface design recommendations: 3 recommendations were targeted at perceptual capabilities of elderly users, 2 at motor coordination problems, and 4 at cognitive and memory deterioration. We also compiled and reported 5 categories of persuasive features: reminders, social features, game elements, personalized interventions, and health education.Discussion: Only 5 studies included design elements that were based on theories. Moreover, the majority of the included studies evaluated the application as a whole without examining end-user perceptions and the effectiveness of each single design feature. Finally, most studies had methodological limitations, and better research designs are needed to quantify the effectiveness of the application designs rigorously.Conclusions: This review synthesizes elderly-friendly interface and persuasive feature design recommendations for mobile health applications from the existing literature and provides recommendations for future research in this area and guidelines for designers.<br/>(AN 152975093); ISSN: 10675027<br/>CINAHL Complete Incorporating broadband durability in measuring geographic access to health care in the era of telehealth: A case example of the 2-step virtual catchment area (2SVCA) Method. https://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=ccm&AN=152975092&site=ehost-live TI remote consultation OR "remote consultation" OR "remote consultation" OR telecommunications O urn:uuid:62b5c30f-e2bc-733d-e3f8-7e57f9806fd6 Mon, 01 Nov 2021 04:00:00 +0000 Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association; 11/01/2021<br/>The COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) pandemic has expanded telehealth utilization in unprecedented ways and has important implications for measuring geographic access to healthcare services. Established measures of geographic access to care have focused on the spatial impedance of patients in seeking health care that pertains to specific transportation modes and do not account for the underlying broadband network that supports telemedicine and e-health. To be able to measure the impact of telehealth on healthcare access, we created a pilot augmentation of existing methods to incorporate measures of broadband accessibility to measure geographic access to telehealth. A reliable measure of telehealth accessibility is important to enable policy analysts to assess whether the increasing prevalence of telehealth may help alleviate the disparities in healthcare access in rural areas and for disadvantaged populations, or exacerbate the existing gaps as they experience "double burdens."<br/>(AN 152975092); ISSN: 10675027<br/>CINAHL Complete Health management via telemedicine: Learning from the COVID-19 experience. https://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=ccm&AN=152975088&site=ehost-live TI remote consultation OR "remote consultation" OR "remote consultation" OR telecommunications O urn:uuid:b9c59b0b-925c-7f9a-c060-ff3db115675f Mon, 01 Nov 2021 04:00:00 +0000 Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association; 11/01/2021<br/>At the onset of the COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) pandemic, telemedicine was rapidly implemented to protect patients and healthcare providers from infection. It is unlikely that care delivery will fully return to the pre-COVID form. Telemedicine offers many opportunities to improve care efficiency, accessibility, and patient outcomes, but many challenges exist related to technology interoperability, the digital divide, and usability. We propose that telemedicine evolve to support continuity of care throughout the patient journey, including multidisciplinary care teams and the seamless integration of data into the clinical workflow to support a learning healthcare system. Importantly, evidence is needed to support this paradigm shift in care delivery to ensure the quality and efficacy of care delivered via telemedicine. Here, we highlight gaps and opportunities that need to be addressed by the biomedical informatics community to move forward with safe and effective healthcare delivery via telemedicine.<br/>(AN 152975088); ISSN: 10675027<br/>CINAHL Complete Disparities in Audio-only Telemedicine Use Among Medicare Beneficiaries During the Coronavirus Disease 2019 Pandemic. https://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=ccm&AN=153015040&site=ehost-live TI remote consultation OR "remote consultation" OR "remote consultation" OR telecommunications O urn:uuid:3db55e22-6731-1172-62da-c148d3f8d856 Mon, 01 Nov 2021 04:00:00 +0000 Medical Care; 11/01/2021<br/>Background: Under emergency coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic regulations, Medicare granted temporary payment parity with in-person visits for audio-only (telephone) telemedicine visits. This policy was designed to expand telemedicine to patients without camera-equipped devices and broadband internet. However, audio-only telemedicine use has been substantial.Objective: The aim of this study was to explore whether the rate of audio-only telemedicine during the pandemic is related to patient access to technology or provider behavior.Design: Cross-sectional analysis of the Summer and Fall 2020 Medicare Current Beneficiary Survey coronavirus disease 2019 supplements, using multivariable logistic models and accounting for complex survey design.Subjects: A total of 3375 participants in the summer survey and 2633 participants in the fall 2020 were offered a telemedicine visit to replace a scheduled in-person visit by their usual care provider.Measures: We compared beneficiaries who were exclusively offered audio-only telemedicine to beneficiaries who were offered video telemedicine or both audio and video.Results: We found that among Medicare beneficiaries who were offered telemedicine to replace a scheduled in-person appointment, ~35% were exclusively offered audio-only. 65.8% of beneficiaries exclusively offered audio-only reported having a smartphone/tablet and home internet. After controlling for personal access to technology, Hispanic [adjusted odds ratio (AOR)=2.09, P<0.001], dually eligible (AOR=1.63, P=0.002), nonprimary English speaking (AOR=1.64, P<0.001), and nonmetro beneficiaries (AOR=1.71, P=0.003) were more likely to be offered audio-only during July-November 2020.Conclusions: These findings suggest audio-only telemedicine use during the pandemic is only partially related to patient access to technology. Policymakers must work to both expand programs that provide smartphones and broadband internet to disparity communities and telemedicine infrastructure to providers.<br/>(AN 153015040); ISSN: 00257079<br/>CINAHL Complete
