Healthcare is facing significant demographic change, and an increasing prevalence of long-term conditions. Within the climate of finite resources, there is an ever increasing emphasis on providing patients with the support and skills to self-manage, and for healthcare services to provide timely interventions that promote well-being, reduce morbidity and more efficient use of healthcare resources.
Could investing in the remote monitoring of patients using telehealth, as part of the Long Term Conditions QIPP programme, result in improved clinical outcomes and reduced healthcare costs including:
Fewer unplanned hospital admissions and reduced demand on unscheduled care
Efficiency gains from reduced visits and increased capacity for case managers
Improved medication compliance
Support the delivery of high quality of care to patients with long-term conditions?
