Author interview: Diagnostic test accuracy of telehealth assessment for dementia and mild cognitive impairment
In this study, 71% of participants who had MCI were correctly identified using telehealth assessment, as were 97% of those who had any cognitive diagnosis (either MCI or dementia), but only 22% of those who had no cognitive diagnosis at face-to-face assessment.

Therefore, perfect agreement between telehealth and face-to-face assessments cannot be expected. The larger Australi...
