Synthesis Statement

The studies focused largely on determining the efficacy of telehealth use in patient monitoring, particularly from the patient perspective. The results show that with effective and appropriate implementation, leveraging telehealth in patient monitoring not only improves patient interaction, communication, and experience with the caregiver, but also results in better patient health outcomes.
