Abstract

The PLOS ONE Collection on "Remote Assessment"brings together a series of studies on how remote assessment methods and technologies can be used in health and behavioral sciences. At the time of writing (October 2022), this collection has accepted and published 10 papers, which address remote assessment in a wide range of health topics including mental health, cognitive assessment, blood sampling and diagnosis, dental health, COVID-19 infections, and prenatal diagnosis. The papers also cover a wide range of methodological approaches, technology platforms, and ways to utilize remote assessment. As such, this collection provides a broad view into the benefits and challenges of remote assessment, and provides a lot of detailed knowledge on how to make it work in practice This paper provides an overview of the included studies, and presents and discusses the different benefits as well as challenges associated with remote assessment.
