a 10- to 15-slide presentation with detailed speaker notes (does not include reference slides). The Final presentation must summarize the health care problem you selected. Describe your proposed research design for your problem statement including the following: (Basically, think of this last assignment as you giving a presentation to potential funders – you are detailing your idea for a study (a proposal) and walking them through each step of the research process for your proposal).

Title: Research Design for Investigating the Impact of Telehealth on Patient Access to Healthcare Services

Slide 1: Introduction
– Greet the audience and introduce the topic: “Good [morning/afternoon]. Today, I am here to present my proposed research design for investigating the impact of telehealth on patient access to healthcare services.”
– Introduce the problem statement: “Access to healthcare has been a persistent challenge, especially in rural and underserved areas. Telehealth, the use of technology to deliver healthcare remotely, has the potential to bridge this gap. Through this research, we aim to assess the effectiveness of telehealth in improving patient access to healthcare services.”

Slide 2: Problem Statement
– Emphasize the significance of the problem: “Lack of access to healthcare services has numerous consequences, such as delayed diagnoses, poorer health outcomes, and increased healthcare costs.”
– Present the problem statement: “The research will focus on understanding the impact of telehealth on patient access to healthcare services. Specifically, we aim to examine whether telehealth interventions can improve access, reduce barriers, and enhance the overall healthcare experience for patients.”

Slide 3: Research Objectives
– Outline the research objectives: “The primary objective of this research is to assess the impact of telehealth on patient access to healthcare services. Secondary objectives include identifying barriers to access, evaluating patient satisfaction with telehealth services, and comparing the cost-effectiveness of telehealth versus traditional in-person care.”

Slide 4: Research Design Overview
– Provide an overview of the research design: “Our research design will consist of a mixed-methods approach, combining quantitative and qualitative data collection methods. The study will be conducted over a 12-month period and involve both healthcare providers and patients.”

Slide 5: Quantitative Research Methods
– Describe the quantitative research methods: “We will use a retrospective cohort study design to analyze electronic health records (EHRs) of patients who have utilized telehealth services and compare them to those who have received traditional in-person care. Key variables of interest include patient demographics, healthcare utilization patterns, and health outcomes.”

Slide 6: Sample Selection
– Explain the sample selection process: “Our sample will include a diverse population of patients from both urban and rural areas. We will use purposive sampling to ensure representation from different age groups, socio-economic backgrounds, and geographical locations.”

Slide 7: Data Collection
– Elaborate on the data collection methods: “For the quantitative aspect, we will extract relevant data from EHRs, including diagnosis codes, procedures performed, medications prescribed, and follow-up visits. This data will be analyzed using statistical software to determine any significant differences between telehealth and traditional care.”

Slide 8: Qualitative Research Methods
– Introduce the qualitative research methods: “To complement the quantitative findings and gain a deeper understanding of patient experiences, we will conduct semi-structured interviews with a subset of telehealth users. This qualitative data will provide valuable insights into patient perspectives, satisfaction, and perceived barriers to access.”

Slide 9: Interview Process
– Explain the interview process: “We will recruit telehealth users based on their demographics and experiences to ensure a diverse and representative sample. The interviews will be audio-recorded and transcribed for analysis. Interview questions will explore topics such as ease of access, quality of care, and perceived barriers or benefits of telehealth.”

Slide 10: Data Analysis
– Describe the data analysis methods: “For the quantitative data, we will employ statistical methods, such as chi-square tests and logistic regression, to compare the outcomes of telehealth and traditional care. Qualitative data from the interviews will be analyzed using thematic analysis to identify common themes and patterns in patient experiences.”

Slide 11: Limitations and Challenges
– Address the limitations and challenges of the research: “One limitation is the reliance on patient-reported data for the qualitative aspect, which may introduce bias or recall errors. Additionally, generalizability may be a challenge given that the study is conducted in a specific geographic area and healthcare system. Recognizing these limitations, our findings will provide valuable insights for further research and policy-making.”

Slide 12: Summary and Conclusion
– Recap the main points discussed: “In summary, our research design aims to investigate the impact of telehealth on patient access to healthcare services. Through a mixed-methods approach, we will collect both quantitative and qualitative data to evaluate the effectiveness of telehealth interventions.”
– Conclude with the importance of the study: “By understanding the benefits and challenges of telehealth, we can inform healthcare policies and interventions that improve patient access and quality of care. Thank you for your attention.”
