But this digital delivery model comes with pros and cons, and more research is needed to determine how to best integrate it. The National Cancer Institute (NCI)'s Robin Vanderpool, who leads health communication and informatics research, highlights the four Telehealth Research Centers of Excellence (TRACE) that aim to help understand and improve telehealth for cancer care delivery.
NCI is researching the role of telehealth in cancer care and developing best practices for continued integration.
