The NHS Telemedicine Conference: Exploring Technology Enabled Care Services
The NHS Telemedicine Conference provides a timely platform for NHS managers and leaders to share practical insight and open the debate on the increasing use of telehealth, telecare, telemedicine, tele-coaching, and self-care applications across the NHS. We are very pleased to offer our NHS Network complimentary attendance for this in-person event.
Recent research findings found 70% of NHS money goes into caring for people over the age of 65 and 60% of those suffer from chronic illness. With 10 million people 65 and over, a figure rapidly increasing, there is the potential to save a lot of money in this area.
Technology Enabled Care Services has been identified as a key enabler to help reduce this figure and improve the wellbeing of patients.
From a national perspective, the NHS England Technology Enabled Care Services (TECS) Resource for Commissioners, has been developed by NHS commissioners to help maximise the value of technology-enabled care services for patients, carers, commissioners and the whole health economy.
We are excited to share details of our first national NHS Telemedicine Conference which will provide an interactive, and in-person platform for NHS managers and leaders to meet up and share practical insight, based on the implementation of Technology Enabled Care Services across the NHS.
Key focus points for The NHS Telemedicine Conference:
A number of the services described under Telehealth can also be accessed via mobile phone technology and Apps, these systems are often used by younger service users and patients to allow them greater flexibility to access these services.
