Background: The Telehealth Dissemination Forum brought together a cross section of telehealth providers and constituents to review the latest telehealth research funded by Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) and to ascertain whether there were known gaps in the research. Methods: A pre-and postsurvey was conducted before and after the general overview of the market and research presentations. Using elements of human-centered design, participants were exposed to alternative problem solving and program design methods with the goal of translating the research into practice. Participants were stratified into four groups each with a moderator. Designers instructed the group throughout the design session. Results: A debrief was conducted at the end of the day to determine the value of the session as written evaluations were often not completed or less constructive. Postmeeting surveys were analyzed. Conclusions: We determined that the dissemination was effective; knowledge, attitudes, practices, and beliefs changed based on how this information was presented. The forum had an impact on participants as they left with design tools to assist with complex problem solving.
