What is a Rapid Review vs. a Systematic Review?

"Rapid reviews can be viewed as a simplified approach to systematic reviews. A rapid review follows most of the principle steps of a systematic review, using systematic and transparent methods to identify, select, critically appraise and analyze data from relevant research. However, to provide timely evidence, some of the components of a systematic review process are either simplified or omitted."
