The Transatlantic Telehealth Research Network (TTRN) 2023 conference was held in August 2023 at the University of California Berkeley’s Sutardja Dai Hall, home to the Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS) and the Banatao Institute. The conference brought together 130 researchers, health care providers, technology entrepreneurs and others from around the world, building on over a decade of partnership between colleagues in the United States and Denmark. The conference was co-sponsored by TTRN, CITRIS and the Banatao Institute and organized by TTRN, CITRIS, UC Berkeley and the International Society for Telemedicine & eHealth.

This summary provides highlights from the dozens of presentations that filled the two days of the conference. It is intended to capture the flow of ideas and resources for those who wish to refer to them in the future, as well as to spark additional collaborations and connections across organizational walls, sectoral silos and national boundaries. The summary is organized according to overlapping themes: training and practice implications for the health care workforce; telehealth models for specific age groups (particularly children and older adults); program models and their implementation; assessing and evaluating telehealth contributions; and presentations centered on digital equity. A closing session explored the current state of telehealth overall and next steps for researchers, practitioners and policymakers. A conference agenda is included as well.
