George MacGinnis of the Assistive Technology Programme at the NHS Connecting for Health was interviewed by MobiHealthNews at the Mobile Healthcare Industry Summit and declared “We [the UK] have upwards of 1 million people who enjoy some form of remote monitoring technology and around 300,000 or more ‘smart homes’ are already out there and wired”.
