Study: No negative side effects to remote telehealth
Modern Healthcare

The use of telehealth remote monitoring interventions was not shown to boost patients’ mental and physical quality of life in a study published in the British Medical Journal, but there were no negative side effects to the treatment either. Researchers from City University London’s School of Health Sciences and other institutions collected self-reported physical and mental quality-of-life scores relating to mobility, self care, ability to perform usual duties, pain and discomfort, anxiety and depression from patients diagnosed with either chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes or heart failure.
