Telemedicine involves utilizing telecommunications and technology to deliver healthcare - including diagnosis, consultation, education, care management, and patient self-management - to populations with otherwise limited access to care. It offers a broad-range of benefits, including increased care accessibility, improved continuity of care, and decreased costs, without sacrificing patient satisfaction. However, telemedicine requires unique skills and approaches, unfamiliar to many physicians. We conducted a rapid review of research-validated techniques, across multiple subspecialties, to identify research-validated techniques for maximizing telemedicine appointments, synthesized in a comprehensive list, in order to support clinicians in modern healthcare settings.
