Research Spotlight

Alliance Board Member Led Study

MedStar Health, Stanford Health Care, Intermountain Healthcare
This AHRQ-funded study analyzed more than four million primary care encounters from MedStar Health, Stanford Health Care, and Intermountain Healthcare through the end of 2021 and found little change in health care utilization as telehealth became widely accessed. Results indicate that telehealth availability does not result in additional primary care visits. In addition, telehealth serves as a substitute for certain in-person encounters.

Medicare Telehealth Analysis

Alliance for Connected Care
A 2019-2021 Medicare claims data analysis commissioned by Alliance for Connected Care and compiled by an independent researcher showed two major findings – first, that there is no evidence of telehealth adding to the total volume of Medicare services, and two, that there is no evidence that patients initiating care through telehealth had a higher need for follow-up visits than patients seeking in-person care – meaning that the care was equally effective.
