Telehealth study among 26 to be funded through $258M from nonprofit

The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute is spending $258 million on 26 new studies investigating mental health, heart health and chronic conditions; several of the studies will be designed to evaluate the effectiveness of telehealth services.

One study will compare text messaging-based interventions to outpatient care for young adult opiate abuse patients, according to a July 26 news release. Another will compare a cardiac rehabilitation telehealth program to in-person care.

"Facing a complex healthcare system and many care options, patients need reliable information to help them understand which care options will work best for them in their particular circumstances," PCORI Executive Director Nakela Cook, MD said in the release.

The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute is a nonprofit organization.
