    Telemedicine’s Impact on Low-value Care Use in Medicare: Implications for Spending and Equity
    Role Description: The proposed research will use national Medicare claims data alongside data from a large, multi-state health system to estimate the impact of telemedicine on low-value care use, total spending, and out-of-pocket spending, and to identify actionable mechanisms underlying these effects, both overall and among historically underserved populations.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
