MD Linx: Exercise delivered via telehealth is effective for chronic disease

Telemonitoring with real time feedback from clinicians has been shown in other contexts to improve clinical markers, but this has not yet been evaluated for exercise in the chronic disease population. This study found that videoconferencing exercise interventions were effective at improving exercise capacity and quality of life. Furthermore, videoconferencing may be at least as effective as in-person interventions and superior to no intervention.
