AHRQ Evidence-based Practice Center Program Grand Rounds Series
The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Evidence-Based Practice Center (EPC) Program, following the program's 25th Anniversary Grand Rounds series in 2022, introduces a new series of Grand Rounds to promote and facilitate the use of EPC evidence reports in healthcare. With support from the Scientific Resource Center (SRC) of the EPC Program and AcademyHealth, these meetings feature presentations from EPC report authors followed by discussions with stakeholders to explore EPC report findings.
March 2023 Grand Rounds: Telehealth
On March 16, 2023, AHRQ hosted a webinar on Telehealth focused on findings from two recently published evidence reports conducted by the AHRQ EPC Program: (1) Use of Telehealth during the COVID-19 Era and (2) Improving Rural Health Through Telehealth-Guided Provider-to-Provider Communications. The authors of the two reports, Elham Hatef, M.D., and Annette Totten, Ph.D., respectively, shared the main findings from the reports. After initial reactions from stakeholders who weighed in on evidence gaps and implications for the field, Lucy Savitz, Ph.D., M.B.A., AcademyHealth Board Chair, moderated a discussion with the broader audience.
