  • Telehealth refers to the use of telecommunication devices and other forms of technology to provide services outside of the traditional in-person health care delivery system. Growth in the use of telehealth creates new challenges and opportunities for implementation in clinical practice. The American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (AAPM & R) assembled an expert group to develop a white paper to examine telehealth innovation in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM & R). The resultant white paper summarizes how telehealth is best used in the field of PM & R while highlighting current knowledge deficits and technological limitations. The report identifies new and transformative opportunities for PM & R to advance translational research related to telehealth and enhance patient care.
