Article of the Week

Wade, Victoria A., et al. "Transitioning a home telehealth project into a sustainable, large-scale service: a qualitative study." BMC health services research 16.1 (2016): 1.
This is one of my own recent publications (there has to be at least one benefit from editing this newsletter!). It contains further development of my model of the sustainable uptake and implementation of telehealth services; in particular, how an enthusiastic group can tackle this issue with minimal resources. See article here.
US Veteran’s Health Administration (VHA) Digital and Mobile Strategy

See a video here of Drs Randy Petzel and Kathleen Frisbee discussing the value of digital health within a fully integrated model of care. The VHA already has the world’s largest telehealth service, and now they are looking at the benefits of full integration.

Global Telehealth 2016 is one of the “Four Conferences in One” in Auckland this year. The deadline for submissions (27th June) has passed but if you have a complete article ready to go, and still wish to submit to this conference and for possible publication in Studies in Health Technology and Informatics,then contact Anthony Maeder straight away on to discuss a short extension.
Where now for Telehealth in the NHS?

Here’s an article with an update on telehealth action in the UK. Whilst some good results on reducing hospital admissions from aged care are reported, primary care is still largely using the telephone, with little uptake of email or video consultations. Article is here.
