We conducted a scoping review of the literature on the clinical applications of videoconferencing. Electronic searches were performed using the PubMed, Embase and CINHAL databases to retrieve papers published from 2002 to 2012 that described clinical applications of videoconferencing. The initial search yielded 4923 records and after removing the duplicates and screening at title/abstract level, 505 articles met the inclusion criteria and were reviewed at full-text level. The countries with the… Expand
Technical aspects of clinical videoconferencing: a large scale review of the literature
TLDR
The results of this study showed that a high proportion of telemedicine papers lack sufficient technical details that limits their repeatability and generalizability. Expand
Videoconferencing for Health Care Provision for Older Adults in Care Homes: A Review of the Research Evidence
TLDR
Current evidence supports the feasibility of videoconferencing in care homes, however, research needs to be undertaken to establish the contexts and mechanisms that underpin the successful implementation of videconferences in care home and to define useful measures for success. Expand

Recommendations for the Reporting of Telemental Health (TMH) Literature Based on a Systematic Review of Clinical Video Teleconferencing (CVT) and Depression
TLDR
It is demonstrated that there is a clear need for standardization to describe CVT interventions in the literature and standards to ensure key information is included, sufficiently and uniformly described that would increase the accurate reporting, comparability, and reproducibility of theCVT interventions and would benefit the field overall.

Telehealth Interventions Delivering Home-based Support Group Videoconferencing: Systematic Review
TLDR
Groups delivered by videoconferencing are feasible and potentially can improve the accessibility of group interventions and future research on facilitation process in videoconFerencing-mediated groups and large-scale studies are required to develop the evidence base. Expand
Patient satisfaction with video teleconsultation in a virtual diabetes outreach clinic.
TLDR
The patients with diabetes who were seen remotely by endocrinologists via videoconferencing were generally satisfied with remote consultation and a questionnaire developed specifically for diabetes video teleconsultation in this study is useful for the measurement of patient satisfaction. Expand
Validity Study of Video Teleconsultation for the Management of Diabetes: A Pilot Randomized Controlled Trial.
TLDR
The preliminary evidence on the validity of recommendations made by endocrinologists via video consultation is demonstrated, and known limitations of videoconferencing for clinical purposes did not have remarkable impact on the outcome of consultation in terms of adjustment of patient's medications.
