Studies supporting improved follow-up rates post surgery using telehealth or mobile health?

By Andrea Ippolito | 24 Apr, 2014

Greetings!
I am doing a project with a plastic surgeon in Varanasi, India on how to improve follow-up rates with his patients that underwent cleft palate surgery. Traditionally, he has seen poor follow-up rates after surgery and this has lead to further complications for his patients down the line. We are looking into setting up telehealth centers in local clinics in Northern parts of India to help improve follow-up rates.

Does anyone have any advice or know of any studies/research papers/literature that I could refer to as we evaluate telehealth and other mobile health options?

Thank you!
