About JAMA Heath Forum: JAMA Health Forum has transitioned from an information channel to an international, peer-reviewed, online, open access journal that addresses health policy and strategies affecting medicine, health and health care. The journal publishes original research, evidence-based reports and opinion about national and global health policy; innovative approaches to health care delivery; and health care economics, access, quality, safety, equity and reform. Its distribution will be solely digital and all content will be freely available for anyone to read.
What The Study Did: There was growth from 2010 to 2019 in the use of telemedicine among rural Medicare beneficiaries, especially care delivered by nurse practitioners and other nonphysician clinicians.
