Eastern and Coastal PCT telehealth resources

Eastern and Coastal PCT have shared a number of their comprehensive telehealth resources, which can be found below:

Support for commissioners

Health and Social Care organisations considering commissioning a technology enabled service including telehealth, telecare or telecoaching at scale will need to ensure the elements of service, technology, quality and commercial processes integrate to provide a safe, cost effective, and patient centric offering.  This paper details the basic requirements of such a service, all of which must be included in any scalable and sustainable mainstream technology enabled service.

Making Connections Report

This report reflects on the impressive use of technology currently provided by the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) and also draws on the innovative progress that has been made by the NHS through their experience of telehealth.

The VHA and the NHS have a history of working together and this report marks the launch of a three year Exchange Programme.  It is hoped that this programme will act as a trigger for the implementation of digital health in mainstream services in England as well as contribute to the development of telehealth within the VHA.
